    Re: Nautilus Samba Problem

    Reboot is not a fix for Xubuntu, so I'm still interested in upgrading samba!

    I guess it's probably a bad idea to use deb http://www.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/Debian sarge samba for this?
    -edit-
    Nevermind, that's old anyway!

    Re: Nautilus Samba Problem

    I was having trouble seeing my shares. I would look under problem #3 in this thread. You have to uncomment a line in your smb.conf file and rearrange the ordering of that line. Once I did that I could see all my computers and shares.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...samba+browsing

    Change this:
    "; name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast"

    To this:
    "name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host"

    And then issue:
    'sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart' from a terminal

    Re: Nautilus Samba Problem

    Hey thanks for pointing this out. This is a half fix.
    It fixes my sharing between (x)ubuntu machines and Windows <= Vista, but for Windows 7 RTM you still need samba 3.4.3.

    If you don't have Windows 7 in your network, I suggest you try what he said!

    Those of you having problems with Win7, please try adding the following options to your [global] stanza in /etc/samba/smb.conf:
    Code:
    domain master = no
    local master = no
    preferred master = no
    os level = 0
    Restart samba or reboot after making this change. See if that improves things.

    Edit:
    Please ONLY use this configuration if you are using Samba for file sharing between Ubuntu and Windows, not if you are using Samba for sharing files between Linux boxes.

    Doesn't this configuration make samba fail when the Windows 7 machine is off and only Ubuntu machines are in the network? They all ignore the master election.

    Yes, this is a potential problem with the above configuration. I will edit my post accordingly. Thank you.

    Thanks. So my six computer network remains a puzzle:

    1x Win 7
    1x Win Vista
    1x Win XP Pro
    1x Ubuntu
    2x Xubuntu

    Most of the time two *buntu machines and the Windows 7 machine are on, but not always.

    Re: Nautilus Samba Problem

    Not a problem with older versions.
    And according to this:
    http://samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.4.3.html
    not a problem with newer versions in conjunction with Win7 either.

    Major enhancements in Samba 3.4.3 include:

    o Fix trust relationships to windows 2008 (2008 r2) (bug #6711).
    o Fix file corruption using smbclient with NT4 server (bug #6606).
    o Fix Windows 7 share access (which defaults to NTLMv2) (bug #6680).

    Use NFS to share between the Ubuntu machines, and Samba to share between the Ubuntu machines and the Windows machine. For a quick, easy NFS howto, please see the 4th link in my sig.
