Hello,

I am making some changes to our network to split the front office and back office onto two seperate subnets, but need to keep the same Samba server in place serving both subnets.

What I am intending to do is install an additional network card into the server and address this new card for the new subnet. What I am looking to do is properly broadcast the server's samba status/availability across both networks and properly serve files/domain controller data across both subnets.

To do this, I intend to duplicate all the entries in the lmhosts file in /etc/samba with the only difference being the network that the server is broadcasting on.

Will this work, or is this more complicated then I am currently seeing?


I've gotten most of this to work by using the example in Chapt 3 of the Samba-3 by Example book. However, I'm stuck on being able to get access to only some of my shares--for the ones to which I can't connect, I get a BAD_NETWORK_NAME error. If you get past this, please post your solution here.

I see.

It sounds like this issue might be more complicated then I was expecting.

Can you post the ISBN off of the book you mentioned?

Thanks.

The book's ISBN is 0-13-188221-X for the 2d edition; it's available at amazon.com. It was written by John Terpstra, one of the Samba gurus. It's also available on line at http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba3-ByExample.pdf .
