> Feb 5 11:16:22 hal nmbd: name_to_nstring: workgroup name COOMBS ^[ is too long. Truncating to
what do you get if you increase you log level at 4 or 5 and restart your
log level = 5
By the way, Samba-AD works great, you really should upgrade your
standalone fileserver. And it is a good thing to avoid NetBIOS
altogether and stick to DNS. If you disable nmbd, the message will
probably go away...
> I’m running Samba 4.7.4 on FreeBSD 11.1. My smb4.conf file has the workgroup name as “COOMBS”, with NO trailing spaces. Here’s the complete configuration file:
> workgroup = COOMBS
> server string = Samba Server Version %v
> netbios name = HAL
> security = user
> encrypt passwords = yes
> passdb backend = tdbsam
> wins support = yes
> domain master = yes
> interfaces = 192.168.1.220
> bind interfaces only = yes
> path = /zraid/plex
> valid users = plex
> writable = yes
> browsable = yes
> read only = no
> guest ok = no
> create mask = 0666
> directory mask = 0755
> In the prior thread, there was speculation of some invisible control character at play. I typed the above configuration file manually--with no copy/paste--so that should not be the case.
> Note that the error only seems to appear if "domain master = yes” is set.
> The netbios services do see to work—I just get my logs filled with these errors.
