Samba Issue cannot browse by name but can by IP

Post by » 2019/06/15 06:34:38

I just patched my system and it included the Samba 4.8 package. As soon as I completed the upgrade and rebooted, I can access the shares by IP but not by name, for instance \\servername does not work in Windows clients like it did before the patching. I have tried adding netbios name, interfaces, hosts allow, etc. smbd and nmbd are both enabled and running. The error I get on the Windows side is the network path cannot be found. I can ping the system no problem. I have reinstalled Samba with no luck. Any suggestions?

workgroup = <Our AD domain>
netbios name = <server name>
security = user
passdb backend = tdbsam
interfaces = eno1 eno2
hosts allow = 172.16 192.168. 10.
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
load printers = yes
cups options = raw

map to guest = Bad User

comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S, %D%w%S
browseable = No
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes

comment = All Printers
path = /var/tmp
printable = Yes
create mask = 0600
browseable = No

comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
write list = root
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775

comment = datashare
path = /data/data/datashare
writable = yes
browsable = yes
guest ok = yes
create mode = 0777
directory mode = 0777
