Description David Daugherty 2007-11-25 18:19:38 UTC
Samba 3.0.27a (with some custom patches)

This issue causes the following command from Windows XP SP-2 - automatic patches:

net use u: \\\ddaugher /USER:ddaugher 

to fail.  ddaugher is an smbpasswd account.

I think this has resurfaced because of some recent tighting up of DFS code.

I have a windows XP that is sending Trans2 QUERY_PATH_INFO - basic Info
path = \\ddaugher
... but FLAGS2_DFS_PATHNAMES is NOT set!

So smbd/trans2.c: call_trans2qfilepathinfo line 3267

		status = resolve_dfspath(conn, SVAL(inbuf,smb_flg2) & FLAGS2_DFS_PATHNAMES, fname);

Does nothing to the path, leading up to the failure.

Previous versions of Samba used to call resolve_dfspath() without checking the FLAGS2_DFS_PATHNAMESDFS.  Forcing the second parameter to True - and ignoring any possible error works around the problem - it causes and empty path to be returned - same behavior as Samba 3.0.23b. 

I have wireshark traces and can get a log if these would be helpful.  Where should I put them?

Comment 3 Jeremy Allison 2007-11-25 19:15:25 UTC
Is this reproducible with every version of WinXP with this patch set ? Or is it specific to one client ? That client is never setting the DFS bit in its packets.
Have you tried rebooting it ? I really don't want to force us through DFS code on every request if I don't have to. More info please....

wireshark trace - connect by name instead of ID Addr

In this trace - its a different Samba, but the QueryPathInfo does have the DFS_PATHNAMES flag set.  Do you suppose this is because a host name rather than IP address was used?

The command was net use \\dumpty\ddaugher /USER:ddaugher

Stock samba 3.0.24

Here is another trace where stock samba 3.0.24 was used - by ipaddr
This one is slightly different in that the query path info did not supply a path! I don't know why that is

net use \\\ddaugher /USER:ddaugher
or maybe it was
net use \\\ddaugher
and I was prompted for the name and password?

Re Comment #3

1. I have only been testing with one winxp client, but it used to work consistantly - literally for years - until I upgraded to 3.0.27a.

The best I have right now is that it seems as though using the host name instead of the IP address influences if the DFS_PATHNAMES bit gets set or not for that QUERY PATH INFO call.
Comment 7 Jeremy Allison 2007-11-25 20:03:03 UTC
I haven't seen that before - but I'll have to wait until I'm in at work tomorrow to get my full test env available with multiple windows clients. I'm bet money this is a client caching the wrong info on a server though.

Trace against same samba server by name instead of IP Address

This morning after a clean reboot of the windows XP machine

net use v: \\\ddaugher 

still behaves the same as last night's trace

So add to  XP's  \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file:  dd-rhes3

net use v: /d
net use v: \\dd-rhes3\ddaugher

Sigh! Now the windows XP box still does not set the DFS path bit, but it no longer sends a path with the Query Path Info:

I can't explain it.

If you know of caches to flush on the XP side, I will be happy to flush.
Comment 9 Björn Jacke 2013-02-19 15:39:43 UTC
windows xp doesn't set the FLAGS2_DFS_PATHNAMESDFS when it talks to a server that is kerberized. If you use security=domain and winbind rpc only=yes then XP sets the FLAGS2_DFS_PATHNAMESDFS again.

This is a Windows XP bug most probably.

Maybe your samba version you used before jsut didn't use kerberos.
