openSuSE fails to connect to samba share on Apple Time Capsule


Over the years I've had issues with openSuSE and samba. Most recently I've narrowed it down to my Time Capsule. I'm not sure if I was able to access it with different firmware in the past but in its current state everything accept SuSE can access it. Can anyone offer any assistance? Here is information that may be useful.

  • Unable to ping nodes by hostname
  • Nodes respond to pings by ip address
  • Other Windows and Linux OS's can access the share
  • Time Capsule firmware always kept up to date
  • openSuSE can access samba shares on Windows machines

Thanks for your help

Quija

Following link can help you solve hostname issue. You can try Samba again after done that.

Hello Nini,

Thanks for the article. I've read it as well as a few others on the site. I ended up adding a MAC address reservation on my router. So far the machine is reachable via hostname and if for some reason that stop it now has a reserved address. Also I've found a setting for authentication when accessing samba shares. I'm now able to access my Time Capsule's disk. Was my issue an authentication problem? The setting I've found sets a global User ID and password for samba. What if I want to access other shares with different credentials? At this time the issue is superficial I'm just curious and would like to learn more.

Thanks,

Quija

For other share directory, you just need add new configuration for new user and use tool to create new user and password under Samba.
