Description Tom 2004-09-07 18:21:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
It would appear that with the latest samba and kerberos libraries
released that there is an issue with accessing samba shares.

The issue is that you must use the FQDN instead of the short name for
the service to work correctly. Apparently, this has to do with the
version of kerberos samba was built against. I apologize for posting
the bug relating it to kerberos, but I thought it was the appropriate
place to start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
samba-3.0.6-2.3E krb5-libs-1.2.7-28

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install latest samba and kerberos
2. configure samba to use ADS
3. attempt to map a share using something other than FQDN

Actual Results:  failed

Expected Results:  should connect just fine

I've posted to a similar bug report on bugzilla.samba.org here: 

Having exact same problem as person who created the ticket @ 
samba.org.  Redhat AS 3.0, samba quit working after recent upgrade 
from 3.0.4 to 3.0.6.  Log entries are on their website.  Went as far 
as uninstalling samba and krb5 from the box and manually compiled 
krb5 1.3.5 from MIT and Samba 3.0.5, 3.0.6, and latest CVS.  Same 
problem all the way around.  Samba started misbehaving for me after 
the large "quarterly update".  Upgraded a bunch of packages, could be 
any one of the other packages that were upgraded that created this 
problem, but I'm not technical enough to determine which one.
