    Linux Samba settings to display Windows shares


    Hi folks

    Samba needs a different setting to display Windows or any of the SAMBA shares - especially if its version of Linux / NAS server needs / uses SMB1

    You still need to set the SMB1 option in Add features to windows of course.

    also in the samba config file ensure this line is in the global section


    [global]
    max protocol = NT1 <===+++++++++++++++++

    (Not client max protocol !!)

    what this actually does (apart from working !!! ) I have no idea but it fixed 4 Linux machines which suddenly stopped listing Samba shares under network. I saw the suggestion on some weird website - have no idea of the link though - must have been imbibing some of those nice malted fluids kari likes. !!!

    Works also with ubuntu guests as well as Hosts and Centos guests and hosts. haven't messed around with other Linux distros as I don't really use them.

    Windows 10 Pro no longer connects to Samba Share on Linux Workstation

    Hi

    Up until the latest Windows update I was able to access a Samba share on my Linux workstation. Today it asks for a user's name and password but that was not required in the past. I have not set a user name and password on the share and even when I do, Windows
    says the user or password are incorrect.

    How do I fix this issue? I sure wish MS would stop breaking things with updates!

    Thanks

    Simon
