Post Samba Issue


Here is an odd issue. I have several Redhat 8 boxes configured to share home directories that are auto mounted from a Solaris box hosting from a SAN. The authentication is from a WIN2k Domain.

When I attempt to connect from an NT box by hostname (ie \\linuxbox)
i get "The account is not authorized to log in from this station"

but

if I connect by ip addess (ie \\192.168.1.100) it comes up just fine.

Any ideas?

BTW, I cannot post the smb.conf due to security restrictions. Sorry.

You can connect via IP, but can you authenticate as well?

Yes,
everything works exactly as it should. I can see my home directories just as I should. It is very strange. I have checked the DNS and everything is pointing to the correct IP.

Yes...the nmblookup seems to be fine. The odd thing is that it works properly on a few of the clients but others I have to go in using the IP. I thought maybe there was a firewall issue, but that wasn't it.

You say your DNS is working, are you able to resolve in both directions? Names to IPs and IPs to names? Are all the machines members of the domain? If not is there a domain policy that effecting access to/from the non-domain-member machines?

Just a few thoughts.

DNS is operational in both directions. All machines are part of a single WIN2k Domain. I removed and readded all host entries in the DNS just to be sure. I have done nslookup, host, and dig to make sure it is coming up right.

Very odd, I'm not sure what to suggest from here!

Ok, here is another piece to the puzzle. On a whim I changed the netbios name to something else:
netbios = hostname
to
netbios = hostname2

restarted SMB and viola...it works going to the hostname2.
????
Once again leading me back to DNS issues.

Or your master browser storing a junk NetBIOS mapping perhaps.
