Hello, Rieker and Florian!
I was wondering what version of the linux kernel are you running?
I had a situation, where a bunch of Windows XP machines would not see
their SAMBA server when looked up by Netbios name after I upgraded the
linux kernel from 3.5.6 to 3.6.2. My solution was to revert back to the
linux 3.5.x series, but now the 3.5.x series is officially dead .
If the SAMBA server was called by IP, a la "\\192.168.1.1\" - the
windows PCs would see the SAMBA server without problem.
The setup I have is somewhat specific, though, as the SAMBA server has 3
NICs total, and routes traffic to the two subnets it feeds internet and
SAMBA, among other services. The config file I use forces SAMBA to bind
only to the 2 site local network interfaces, if that plays a role.
Because mine is a production setup, I couldn't play with it and look for
where the problem is. So I just switched back to the known good kernel
and called it a day.
My SAMBA version is 3.6.8.
P.S. I sent this e-mail earlier, but perhaps you did not receive it
because I was not subscribed to the list. Sorry if you are recieving it
