The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1747
Unable to browse shares with SERVER mode after 3.0.2 to 3.0.6 upgrade
Last modified: 2005-02-08 21:03:17 UTC
Samba 3.0.2 was working great in SECURITY = SERVER mode with XP and Windows 2000
clients. After upgrading to 3.0.6 it became unable to allow access to any shares
in SECURITY = SERVER mode. The error on the clients when trying to connect would
be 'Requested operation is not supported'. There would be no errors in the
server logs. The server is a RedHat 3ES with all the latest patches.
Eventually the work-around was determined to be change the security mode to ADS
and join the domain and upgrade kerberos to match the version 3.0.6 expects.
Then everything worked again.
It'd be nice if the SERVER mode could be fixed.
security = server has been deprecated.

> security = server has been deprecated.
There is nothing in the Samba 3.0.x release Notes about deprecating that feature
and in fact has a couple of fixes mentioned for 'security = SERVER'.
Please add notice about deprecating this feature to the release notes or else
fix the feature.
