Hi, I have just made a fresh install with 12.04LTS which comes with Samba 3.6.3. I have set up a number of shares using Webmin, it works just as it should and the fileserver (the netbios name) show up in Finder on OS X machines.
However, on Windows 7, the server does not show up under the network. I have spent the last two days going through possible solutions, one that seemed promising was the resolve order = bcast. This did not solve the problem however.
All computers are in the same workgroup and smbtree returns all computers, including the Windows 7 machines. All users are present on both UNIX and Samba. Security is by groups (only one group so far), and per folder. All folders are mode 770. The server IP is static with a DHCP enabled router in the network (dsl modem).
I feel that I have tried everything suggested by Google by now, anyone have any idea of what might be the problem?
Example shareCode:[global] log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n$ obey pam restrictions = yes force group = staff map to guest = bad user encrypt passwords = true passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passdb backend = tdbsam dns proxy = no netbios name = fileserver writeable = yes server string = path = /home unix password sync = yes workgroup = WORKGROUP os level = 20 valid users = @sudo,@staff syslog = 0 security = user usershare allow guests = yes panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d max log size = 1000 pam password change = yes
Code:[PAM] create mode = 770 path = /home/PAM directory mode = 770 [CORE] create mode = 770 path = /home/CORE directory mode = 770 [MEDIA] create mode = 770 path = /home/MEDIA directory mode = 770
