View Full Version : [ubuntu] 7.10 to 8.04 partially broke SAMBA

May 1st, 2008, 06:24 PM
After upgrading to 8.04, the raptor server is unable to connect to SMB shares on Windows machines; however, Windows machines can connect to the raptor server with no issues.

Part of the backup process involves connecting to a Windows machine on the network and copying backup files to it.

smbclient -L //raptor -U steve

results in:

timeout connecting to
timeout connecting to
Error connecting to (Operation already in progress)
Connection to raptor failed (Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)

EDIT: When I specify the local IP of //raptor, the smbclient behaves as expected.

The Windows box I connect to is on //john/backup.

smbclient -L //john -U john

results in:

Domain=[JOHN] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

Attempts to connect to the //john/backup share with:

mount -t smbfs -o username=john,password=<hidden> //john/backup /mnt/backup

result in:

mount error: could not find target server. TCP name john/backup not found
No ip address specified and hostname not found

bind9 service is installed and running with the defaults; however, I don't have a clue as to how it should be configured as the previous version worked.

I retained all configuration files during the upgrade.

Any thoughts?
