Dear all,

I've done some changes in my system, and it seems that somehow I broke samba.

The system (samba server) is up to date:
      Code:

root@debian[/home/finotti]# infobash -v3
Host/Kernel/OS  "debian" running Linux 3.9-5.slh.2-aptosid-amd64 x86_64 [ aptosid 2010-02 Κῆρες - kde-full - (201009132215) ]
CPU Info        2x Intel Core2 Duo E8400 @ 6144 KB cache flags( sse3 ht nx lm vmx ) clocked at [ 2999.842 MHz ]
Videocard       NVIDIA G86 [GeForce 8500 GT]     [  ]
Network cards   NVIDIA MCP55
                NVIDIA MCP55
Processes 163 | Uptime 12min | Memory 1137.3/7991.1MB | HDD WDC WD1500ADFD-0,WDC WD20EARX-00P,WDC WD1001FALS-0,WDC WD10EALS-00Z Size 4150GB (55%used) | Client Shell | Infobash v3.46


What I've done was replace the wireless with electric outlet ethernet adapter and replace the hardrive where the samba shares were.

The first should not be a problem, I suppose, as the network seems to be working fine. (I had to do some work to get my VPN client to work, but I think it has nothing to do with this problem.) For instance, I can SSH to the samba server without problems.

Now, I replaced the old hard disk with a larger one. I rsync'ed the old to the new, edited fstab to mount the new HD in the old mounting point ('/media/media').

Here is my fstab:

      Code:

root@debian[/home/finotti]# cat /etc/fstab
UUID=B66C5FB26C5F6C5D                         /media/winroot       ntfs       noauto,users,ro,dmask=0022,fmask=0133,nls=utf8 0 0

(The old HD now mounts to old_media.) I can locally access the files in the new HD fine in the samba server.

Here is my smb.conf:
      Code:

root@debian[/home/finotti]# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
[global]
workgroup = MEDIA
netbios name = DEBIAN
security = share
[video]
comment = Video
path = /media/media/video
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
[ian]
comment = Ian
path = /media/media/ian
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
[pics]
comment = Pics
path = /media/media/pics
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
[music]
comment = Music
path = /media/media/music
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes

I edited this file when I got the new HD, as I needed to remove some entries, so please let me know if I mistakenly took something out I shouldn't have.

I don't think I've ever touched smb.conf.master, but I can post it if it helps.

Now, I cannot access the shares in other computers. In another computer, if I try to access via XFCE file managers: Network -> Windows Network -> MEDIA (appears), I get "Failed to Open MEDIA. Failed to retrieve share list from server."

In the same computer (samba client) I have the following fstab:
      Code:

root@debian[/home/finotti]# cat fstab
UUID=47EB-6C1A                                /media/disk1part3    vfat         noauto,users,rw,quiet,umask=000,shortname=lower 0    0   
UUID=aeebe673-4397-46f3-bfcb-8593ba97156d     /                    ext4         defaults,relatime,errors=remount-ro           0    1   
UUID=6104d553-3233-4d5e-b848-596d9eb98b25     /media/data    ext4         auto,users,rw,exec,relatime                   0    0   
//debian/video /media/smb/video      cifs   users 0 0
//debian/tv2 /media/smb/tv2      cifs   users 0 0
//debian/ian /media/smb/ian      cifs   users 0 0
//debian/music /media/smb/music      cifs   users 0 0

(Note the cifs entries.)

If I try to manually mount, I get:
      Code:

# mount /media/smb/video
Password: [leave blank]
Unable to find suitable address.


My WDTV, which used to read the shares, cannot connect either. Oddly enough, my ASUS TF700T (android tablet) can connect to the shares just fine... (!!!!)

I've tried older kernels, where I am certain it worked before (with all my devices), but it did not help.

Here are some log files (trimmed after a "/etc/init.d/samba restart").

      Code:

root@debian[/var/log/samba]# cat log.smbd
[snip]
2013/07/02 00:06:45,  0] smbd/server.c:1072(main)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Let me know if I can provide any further info.

Thanks,

Luis

OK, I've got some more info: in the fstab of my other computer (the samba client), if I change "debian" by its address (192.168.1.120) it works fine. But, thunar, which finds the shares itself, cannot connect. Same with my WDTV. On android, I used the IP address to mount the shares, so that's why it works...

First check your smb.conf with testparm (packaged in samba-common-bin), also make sure that there aren't conflicting hostnames configured in /etc/hosts (keep in mind that several home routers tend to cache hostname sent to them via dhcp requests, which might interfere for a little longer).

A little off topic, but please reconsider using electric outlet network. It could be a security issue and may generate radio frequency. See this link for more information:
