[Samba] Re: can´t access share by name, but on ip

In my environment here I had the same problem on a single Windows XP 
workstation.  All of the other workstations were fine.  While investigating, 
I discovered that the clock on the affected machine was off by more than the 
allowed Kerberos skew limit.  I solved it by synchorizing the clock on the 
affected workstation.

In my environment we are using AD authentication and the Kerboros mechanism 
wants the clocks to be reasonably synchronized.  I am unsure why the 
authentication will work with an ip address and not the Netbios name.

Hi All !

i´m running Clearcase (IBM Rational) and have some strange problems ... when 
i use Samba ver 3.21b i can´t access the samba share by name 
(\\servername\sambashare) but i can access it on ip 
(\\\sambashare\) i´m running debug level 10 and it seems like 
it can´t authenticate when access on netbios/dns/host name but on ip it can 
? when running samba ver 3.23b from blastware.org it works fine to access 
share from windows but unfortantly Clearcase doesn´t support this version.. 
(something with their filesystem) any suggestions ? i dont thin it it s a 
dns/host/netbios problem !
