    SuSE 8.2 and the invisible samba server

    I really started to like SuSE and wanted to check out if if can do more than just provide a nice looking desktop. So first thing was to set up a samba server. That should be easy enough. I know how to set up samba servers and I've got three of them running on various debian servers in our local LAN without any problems.

    The problem with the SuSE server is that it doesn't appear in the network neighbourhood on windows machines. I found this entry in the SuSE support database that describes the symptom but doesn't offer any useful solution as for me there is no file called /etc/rc.config nor a system variable named SETUPDUMMYDEV. As a matter of fact I disabled any network dummy device.

    What gives? Any ideas or reports on setting up a samba server successfully using SuSE 8.2?

    Cheers, demian

    Got it.

    The Netbios name server wasn't running... On a debian system this service is automagically started when you start smbd (it's called from the init.d/samba script) so I overlooked that one.
