Description Marcio oLIVEIRA 2012-10-10 17:33:20 UTC
At the "man" of smb.conf and at the documentation: http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages-3/smb.conf.5.html#NAMERESOLVEORDER

The default value of the parameter is:
"Default: name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast"

But it is wrong, because the correct is:
"Default: lmhosts wins host bcast"
This was tested with testpart command and it is the true, thus I require to change and correct the documantation of samba at the official site and for the next man pages.

My samba version is: 3.5.10-116.el6_2.x86_64
My OS is: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2
My kernel references are: Linux 2.6.32-131.6.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jun 20 14:15:38 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Therefore, I think it is a general problem to solve.
