Question Linux Networking Question/Problem




I have finally decided to get that Win2K virus off of my machine and have installed RedHat 9.0. I am currently trying to solve two issues with my RedHat box. It is connected to a small Win2K network with no domain setup only a workgroup. When I look at the "network servers" from my RedHat 9 box I see my Win2K workgroup and I also see the default redhat"My Group" workgroup. My redhat box shows up in both workgroups. From my Win2K experience I believe that this may cause some issues for me. I can see both of the other Win2K machines but only some of the shares that I (setup) and used to normally access from Win2K. The other shares are "invisible" to me. How can I change default workgroup designation from "My Group" to "Workgroup"?? Any ideas why I can only see part of my previous shares???

Thanks,

the workgroup define should be in your /etc/samba/smb.conf file, it's on line #18 in mine.

ps: after modifying the file, run /etc/init.d/winbind restart
