Try adding "server max protocol = nt1" in the [global] section?
This should probably have been 'client max protocol = CORE'
If this works, then read in 'man smb.conf' about 'client max protocol'
and raise the level until it stops working, then use the last level
Thanks for the suggestions. I had already tried that as well, but with no
success. Even after many re-reads I admit to a complete lack of
understanding as to what 'server max/min ..' and 'client max/min ..' are
actually doing. If I squint with one eye, it looks like client impacts
the operation of smbclient on the local machine, but your statement
implies something quite different. As I said, no combination of these
I would also suggest you find a away of moving from DOS, at some point
it is highly likely that the old auth methods will be removed.
That will be the point when I stop updating my server. I understand the
march of progress, but it is not practical for me to get caught up in it
at the expense of losing network connectivity from my shop computers.
I finally solved the problem. After removing everything samba related
from the platform, I spent an hour or two unsuccessfully trying to build
an older version from source. When that threatened to lead me into
dependency hell, I gave up and reinstalled the original samba. After
restart, it began to cooperate using my original configuration!
Nothing like this sort of thing to make one doubt one's own sanity. Upon
digging a bit deeper, I _suspect_ the sudden cooperation is due to my not
reinstalling everything (e.g. winbind) that was there from the original
Ubuntu roster. I'm not about to verify this theory by trying to break
anything again and am just thankful to have functionality back.
Thanks to those who chimed in and tried to help!
