Samba keeps setting mangled names to on


Hi, for some reason I'm unable to set my Samba to disable the use of mangled names with the following approach. Any ideas?
Code:
[/usr/local/samba/var/var] # setcfg global "mangled names" no -f /etc/config/smb.conf
[/usr/local/samba/var/var] # /etc/init.d/smb.sh restart
Restarting SMB services:
Shutting down SMB services: smbd nmbd.
Shutting down winbindd services: winbindd.
locks path was set to /share/MD0_DATA/.locks
Starting winbindd services:Starting SMB services:.
done.
[/usr/local/samba/var/var] # grep mangle /etc/config/smb.conf
mangled names = yes

I'm thinking we're going to need a lot more info to help with this.
What version of samba?
Code:
/usr/local/samba/bin/samba -V
What distro are you running it on?
Did you get samba from the repositories or build it yourself?
If you built it yourself, what options were included in that build?
What does the rest of your smb.conf file contain?
Code:
cat /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf
When you run the setcfg command above, do you get any feedback in the logs? Is samba chrooted or no?

Help us out with just a bit more info.

Sorry for the late reply. But I have been unable to find anything. It's actually a QNAP NAS and it's not clear what Linux distro it's based on.
Code:
[/etc] # ls -ltr /etc | egrep 'release|version'
[/etc] #
I also checked the /var/log/log.nmbd log file when I execute the following command and saw nothing appeared.
Code:
setcfg global "mangled names" no -f /etc/config/smb.conf
I am able to get you the two other pieces of information however.
Code:
[/usr/local/samba/bin] # /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -V
Version 3.6.23
Code:
[/etc/config] # cat smb.conf

Ah. Ok. The 'uname' tool might work for identifying the Linux version, kernal and architecture for this piece of hardware. Try this:
Code:
uname -a
Have you checked any of the other logs? /var/log/syslog will have any errors related to the starting of an application (before that app can shunt all of it's errors over to it's own log.)

The output of your /etc/config/smb.conf shows that mangled names is currently set to 'no'. Why the grep command in your original post shows it as set to 'yes' is a point of confusion now. If you're accessing this device using ssh, I would recommend using scp to copy that config file from the NAS to your computer so you can take a look at it in the editor of your choice, just to verify that setting. I am a bit more confident in the output of the cat command rather then the grep. You might also want to try using both like this:
Code:
cat /etc/config/smb.conf | grep mangled
Finally, have you actually connected a client to the NAS to check if it's getting mangled names or not?
