I just updated to ipfire 152.
I am getting this error for samba
nmbd Error - should be sent to WINS server
I found the solution on the web and it is:
There are two ways to solve this ‘problem’:
You have an windows server, which runs wins
You told all windows network systems, that this windows server ip
address is fro wins. Depending on static or dhcp ip’s you have to
manualy assign wins in tcp/ip properties, or chaneg dhcp config and
do “ipconfig /renew” in a command windows.
For the samba system you must add "wins server =
wins server (G)
This specifies the IP address (or DNS name: IP
address for preference) of the WINS server that
nmbd(8)should register with. If you have a WINS
server on your network then you should set this to
the WINS server’s IP.
You should point this at your WINS server if you have a multi-subnetted network. NOTE. You need to set up Samba to point to a WINS server if you have multiple subnets and wish cross- subnet browsing to work correctly. See the documentation file BROWSING.txt in the docs/ directory of your Samba source distribution. Default: not enabled Example: wins server = 18.104.22.168
You want run wins on samba server.
Set “wins support = yes”
wins support (G)
This boolean controls if the nmbd(8)process in
Samba will act as a WINS server. You should not set
this to true unless you have a multi-subnetted net?
work and you wish a particular nmbd to be your WINS
server. Note that you should NEVER set this to
true on more than one machine in your network.
Default: wins support = no
Yep! A simple wins support = yes and no messages were logged any more - thanxxx!
In my network samba works without the legacy “WINS” at all. And microsoft say that “WINS” should not used if it is not already deployed. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/technologies/wins/wins-top because it has some serious security flaws.
Also keep in mind that such additional options should set in smb.conf.local to prevent from overwrite by the webinterface.
