[openFATE 308598] Samba Description Field

Feature #308598, revision 3
Title: Samba Description Field

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Malvern Star (solaris444)

The Samba Server YaST UI should allow users to edit the description
field that is visible to the network for each machine.
The Samba Server configuration component in YaST allows users to set
shares, workgroup, netbios identifier and WINS server for the machine,
however it does not allow the user to set the description field. The is
somewhat inconvenient as the default description is always the Samba
version string, meaning that Windows machines (which display the
description string FIRST when viewing the network) will group all Linux
machines on the network together. It would be helpful to be able to set
this field without enabling swat or editing the Samba config file.

+ Just bumping this up.  I'd like to see it get into openSuSE 11.3
