Re: [opensuse] openSUSE 11.0 cannot get samba to work

Hi Rui,

is NMB working? If samba refuses to run, I would suggest to run an strace on
samba, as "strace -f -o /tmp/samba.strace rcsmb start.
I think it could be helpful if you posted the output of "testparm -v", to show
any problems with the configuration and to give us some clues.

Kind regards,

Hi all,

I've stumbled on a problem I've had before... SAMBA problem.

I reinstalled my machine with openSUSE 11.0 ( former 10.3 ).
I've copied the smb.conf file from the previous installation and
restarted the samba server.

Now I have a lot of problems:
- No one can access my shares. Windows machines claim they cannot
see my machine.
- With smb_kio I can access almost all machine. A few exceptions a
two linux machines configured with security=share
- with mount.cifs I can access all shares in the network

Here is what I have done:
- Used three samba version: Original, openSUSE Updates and
Samba/Stable from openSUSE Repositories.
- Tried a lot of smb.conf files...

What I know:
- Samba insists on not working.
- The Network PDC is an openSUSE 10.3 with samba on LDAP.
- Well... on the previous versions, smb used to be listening on
ports TCP/139/445. When I issue a "netcat -anp | grep smb', only this
pops up:
tcp 0 0 ESTABLISHED 9839/smbd
unix 3 [ ] STREAM CONNECTED 39575 9839/smbd

I have googled for answers but... I was unable to find any solutions
for my problem. Could it be an upgrade issue ? openSUSE 10.3 uses samba
3.0.x and openSUSE 11.0 uses samba 3.2.x.
Can anyone point me out in the right direction on how to solve this ?
