[Samba] How to Open a Share via an IP or Alias Name




With older versions of Samba, from a Windows server I could open a share on a Linux server using any of the following forms...

                Host name:         \\hostname\share<file://hostname/share>
                IP address:          \\10.10.10.10\share<file://10.10.10.10/share>
                Alias Name:        \\alias\share<file://alias/share> (as long as 'alias' resolves in DNS)

With Samba 4.7.1, I can now only use one of the forms.

                Host name:         \\hostname\share<file://hostname/share> - Works
                IP address:          \\10.10.10.10\share<file://10.10.10.10/share> - I get a logon failure, no permissions, no logon server available
                Alias Name:        \\alias\share<file://alias/share>  - I get a logon failure, no permissions, no logon server available

This means I can no longer open shares on clustered Linux servers by their cluster names.

Any ideas?
