Description Tobias Barth 2007-03-03 18:24:46 UTC
I have two linux machines with samba on it. the first one is a PIII machine with Samba 3.0.24. It is the PDC. I can access all shares and files on it with my windows XP professional 64bit (Service Pack 1) system. The second one is a SuSE 10.1 machine (AMD 64 Bit) with Samba 3.0.25beta (also tried 3.0.24 and the 3.0.20 that came with SuSE). With 3.0.24 and 3.0.25b, I can do "net view" and see both samba servers. But with "net view \\computername", I can only see the shares on the PDC. Trying to view the shares on the other machine gives a "System error 50 has occurred. The request is not supported". All WinXP 32 bit systems do not have this problem.

Here are the configurations:

******************** PDC (working) ***********************************
        netbios name = FILESERVER
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        os level = 33
        preferred master = yes
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        security = domain
        domain logons = yes
        hosts allow =
        hosts deny =
        wins support = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        log level = 4
        display charset = UTF8

        ; Scripts
        add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /var/lib/nobody -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u
        add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
        delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
        add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usermod -G %g %u
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        logon script = /var/lib/samba/netlogon/standard.bat

******************** other linux server (request is not supported) ***
   workgroup = WARTS
   guest account = nobody
   keep alive = 30
   os level = 20
   kernel oplocks = false
   security = server
   hosts allow =
   password server = ; the FILESERVER
   encrypt passwords = yes

   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   map to guest = Bad User
   debug timestamp = yes
   debug hires timestamp = yes
   debug pid = yes
   debug uid = yes
   debuglevel = 10
   local master = no
   interfaces =
   wins support = no

I'll take a look.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2007-04-04 00:29:28 UTC
Works fine with the current SAMBA_3_0_25 tree.
