Thread: Samba Server puzzling behavior.

  1. #1

    Default Samba Server puzzling behavior.

    My Samba server is starting up as the master browser on the wrong NIC and I can’t find a way to change it. Here are the specifics.


    Eth0: 192.168.0.2 External
    Eth2: 192.168.2.1 Internal
    Samba Server configured with open port only on Eth2
    From the Services Manager I see the following for Samba NMB Daemon:
    “Samba name server ROUTFIRE is now a local master browser for workgroup WORKGROUP on subnet 192.168.0.2”


    Wrong subnet and I’ve not found a way to correct this. Anyone have any idea what I’ve missed?

    This is a fresh install.

    Thanks

    Bob

    Since I hope you don't want to run Samba on the external interface, you should use;

    interfaces = eth2 lo
    bind interfaces only = yes

    In your /etc/samba/samba.conf under [global], restart smb and nmb for it to take effect.

    LOL.... you 'hope' correctly.

    Did I miss something in the GUI tools? Perhaps I'm putting to much faith into them.

    I'm sure there's a way to bind the interfaces via the GUI but I never use them and administer all systems through console/salt states.

    Sorry :-)
