The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1910
uNCName filled with hostname instead of netbiosname
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:21:54 UTC
We included the printing-patch from #1519.
hostname: vmdb07t # joined active directory 2003
relevant part of smb.conf (test for a clustered system with a floating ip&name):
interfaces = 10.96.70.26
bind interfaces only = Yes
socket address = 10.96.70.26
netbios name = sambatest
when we connect to a configured printers via point and print we get an registry
The value for "uNCName" is "\\VMDB07T\lanp099" but should
be "\\sambatest\lanp099". We assume problems when switching our productive
samba-application to the other host.
Another problem is: If you don't set "netbios name" the value of "uNCName" is
set to \\fqdn\printer for example: \\vmdb07t.universa.de\lanp099.

fixed in 3.0.11 by forcing the long name to NETBIOSNAME.domain
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
