Changing workgroup?


By default my version of Arch Linux (Manjaro Linux) Installs with workgroup ad WORKGROUP so I think. How do I verify what work group I am in and how to change it? I am not yet running SAMBA so can't change it in there.

That's usually in the smb.conf file.

How do you know that you are part of a workgroup? You're not talking about hostname are you?

Also did you try their forum?

First you need to modify your Samba configuration file -->

Code:
sudo medit /etc/samba/smb.conf


#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH
   workgroup = Linux-Rox

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[TV_&_Music_Video]
comment = TV_&_Music_Video
public = yes
browseable = yes
writable = no
path = /media/Cinema_HD/Cinema
guest ok = yes
share modes = yes

Then start the service -->

Code:
sudo systemctl enable smbd.service  # This sets it so it starts on boot

sudo systemctl start smbd.service # This starts it for the current session.
Hope this helps.
