Samba 4 Adn Win 10

Post by linuxman74 » 2018/02/22 10:20:00

Hi,
I have a CentOS 7 with Samba 4.6.2
I show it in Network Place on each Windows 7 and other Linux but not on Wind 10.
If i try with \\<ip_address> it work but not with \\<linux_name>
Why?

p.s.
Sorry for my bad english.

You can try this:

In your smb.conf file add this below the 'workgroup=' line

Code: Select all

client max protocol = SMB3
Restart samba and see if you can connect with win10.

Is it in DNS or have you added it to your Windows hosts file?
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

Oops, I missed the fact that it works on ip address. Not enough coffee this morning I guess.

I would think the place to start looking is DNS - TREVORH I think your spot on here.

Can you ping the samba server via its FQDN from the windows 10 box?
