Hallo Samba experts out there,
I do have a very strange problem with Samba 3.0.4-1.12 on SuSE 9.1 (kernel2.6.5-7.75-smp)
Samba is configured as a PDC and WINS server. DNS (bind 9) also works
correctly on the linux box (acting as a forwarder to the ISP's DNS servers) -
foward and reverse lookups work flawlessly from the box and from XP clients.
When browsing the network neigbourhood from XP clients (XP Pro, SP 1,
all security patches) all available XP clients of the domain show up, only
the Samba Server (which - as indicated above - acts as the WINS Server)
is missing and it does also not appear after some time.
The file browser.dat (on linux) however includes the samba server as well as all other (XP) computers belonging to the domain.
Strangely enough it IS POSSIBLE to mount shares on the samba box if the syntax
net use \\server\share
is used from XP. Even a search for the server with XP's "find computers" dialogue box works flawlessly and quick. The results even indicates that the server should be located within the domain - even though it is still not there (i.e. not visible) after the search.
At the moment I am clueless and would appreciate any hints / ideas.
Searching with google and within the groups did not reveal any results.
I am sure there's some expert out there who is able to help.
Thanks in advance,
