Hi all.

I am running Debian jessie server with Samba, which has joined the Active Directory domain. The domain controllers are Windows Server 2012 R2.

After I upgraded Samba version from 4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u2 to 4.2.10+dfsg-0+deb8u2, I'm facing the problem that I can't access Samba share by NetBIOS Aliases or IP Address.

The Samba's NetBIOS name is mysamba, and I can access by NetBIOS Name from windows pcs as follows.

net use g: \\mysamba\myshare

But, I can't access by NetBIOS aliases or IP address as follows. (mysamba01 is NetBIOS aliase)

net use g: \\mysamba01\myshare
net use g: \\\myshare

The previous version, 4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u2 works fine, and I can access share by NetBIOS Aliases or IP Address.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
