Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52206
SAMBA, not SMB, in installer notes
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:23:20 EDT
Description of Problem:
The "Online Help" availible durning GUI installation, during the
NIS/SMB/LDAP authentication-setup screen, mentions SAMBA. Sine the SMB
option only indicates SMB, this may confuse the newer RHL users that don't
understand that we mean to indicate the same thing. I think, since SAMBA
doesn't run on Windows, that we should change the online help to reference
SMB (which is *both* SAMBA and native Windows) throughout. This way, the
help will be consistent with the configuration dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reassigning to the Docs group.
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
This is a suggestion that will be changed in the next release cycle. For now, as
it is not a actual error but just confuing text, it will stay as it is too late
in the cycle to change it. However, when you click on SMB - it does say Samba
-- which means the labeling is correct as far as the documentation goes to be
consistent with each of the tabs you click on (not looking at the tabs on a
whole). I think that the tab should be changed to SMB/Samba, to make it more
clear and consistent.
Brock: does this make sense to you?
Fixed and committed. Am sending mass mail to translation teams and so on, so
this may be incorporated properly. All references to Samba now say SMB - see
also bug 52363.
