Description Eddie Chen 2008-03-25 12:12:42 UTC
We have 4 samba servers all running RHEL4u5 samba version 3.0.27a, and one of the 4 servers is not allowing Windows Vista to access its samba shares. When we issue dir \\bb02f79.unx.sas.com\sasgen, it returned "The Parameter is incorrect", and others listed files.

We compared their config file, and everything are the same except netbios name.

Here is the error log:
[2008/03/19 15:50:58, 3] smbd/error.c:error_packet_set(106)error packet at smbd/sesssetup.c(105) cmd=115 (SMBsesssetupX) NT_STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER

Samba config file:
        netbios name    = BB02F79
        workgroup = CARYNT
        server string = PC Bubble Samba Server
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        log level = 3
        max log size = 10240
        security = domain

Thank you for helping, as our vista users are dead in the water.

Believe to fixed in 3.0.28a.  Please retest.  Thanks.  Reopen if necessary.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2008-03-25 12:25:16 UTC
marking as fixed.
Comment 3 Eddie Chen 2008-03-25 12:26:26 UTC
but why other servers with 3.0.27a worked?
Comment 4 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2008-03-25 12:50:22 UTC
Vista changes things.  Would you test and let me know if 3.0.28a solves the issue for you?  Thanks.
