#10532 closed defect (obsolete)

issues with latest samba 3.0.37 upgrade

Reported by: Todd Richmond <todd_richmond@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


1) nmbd was moved to a separate package in the latest upgrade, but it is pretty much required with smbd. Users cannot browse by name (
machinename) without nmbd and must use
ipaddress instead. It would be better to leave them together rather than break installs and upgrades.

2) smbd/nmbd cannot find interfaces for some reason now. I had to add "interfaces = br-lan" to smb.conf.template

3) smb.conf.template should have these values changed to work in more environments. The most important is UTF-8 support

deadtime = 15
display charset = UTF-8
unix charset = UTF-8
use sendfile = yes

2) - use latest template. See changelog!
1) Tood, erroneous assumption that everyone wants to samba to advertise. smbd can run without nmbd.

1- you can save space on routers with small flash size but keep the option to later install nmbd as a stand alone packet.
2- for some reason adding "interfaces = br-lan" or interfaces = |INTERFACES| to smb.conf.template doesn't solve the issue for me.
i had to add "interfaces =" otherwise smbd/nmbd would still not find any interfaces.

I prefer using avahi, then you can easily browse on Mac/Windows/Linux. nmbd is big and ugly.

You can close this bug. I will open a separate bug for the recommended smb.conf.template changes (some of which are now in the trunk). These came out of my project to port samba 3.6 to openwrt - ticket 9992
