I hope you could help me. I don't get any answer i the newsgroups.
I have a Win NT box as a PDC and running the linux box as a domain member. I
have updated to Samba 3 on linux box. I joined the domain with no errors.
Everything works fine from another NT box that I have I can browse the
linux box shares and so on. But if I do the same thing from the Win98
machine I get this error messages "The network name cannot be found" I can
ping the win98 box from the linux box both with name and ip adress and that
works the other way as well. Could someone help me with the problem? I get
no error messages in the Samba log files. I'm running Gentoo and
samba-3.0.2a-r2. I have followed the checklist on this page and everything
Below is the relevant part of my smb.conf
workgroup = valhall
security = domain
printcap name = cups
disable spoolss = yes
show add printer wizard = no
winbind uid = 15000-20000
winbind gid = 15000-20000
winbind separator = +
winbind use default domain = yes
use sendfile = Yes
printing = cups
restrict anonymous = no
domain master = no
preferred master = no
max protocol = NT
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto
name resolve order = host lmhosts wins bcast
password server = *
display charset = ISO8859-1
unix charset = ISO8859-1
dos charset = 850
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
browseable = no
read only = no
do you see the linux box in network neighbourhood on the win98 machine?
Can you browse other (NT) shares from that machine?
Do you get the error when you try to access a share on the linux box or when
you try to access the box to get a list of available shares?
If I do like this
from the win98 machine try
I get an extended error message
If I try to access the linux box by clicking Network and then click the icon
of the linux box I get the "The network name cannot be found" error message.
I found something in the samba log files!
if I'm running it like this
In the log file for the NT machine ( which work) it says
[2004/05/23 19:07:15, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(705)
server1 (192.168.1.10) signed connect to service ville initially as user
ville (uid=1000, gid=100) (pid 4371)
and on the Win98 box I get an extended error occured message
and in the samba log file (/var/log/samba/log.oden) for the Win98 box it says
[2004/05/23 18:51:15, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(705)
oden (192.168.1.35) connect to service ville initially as user ville
(uid=1000, gid=100) (pid 4325)
[2004/05/23 18:51:15, 1] smbd/service.c:close_cnum(887)
oden (192.168.1.35) closed connection to service ville
the only difference I can se is that the connection directly closes.
Everything worked before the upgrade when I was running Samba 2.2.8
Please help or advice
