Thread: wins_srv_died() - Samba has left the building

  1. wins_srv_died() - Samba has left the building

    Samba has within the last week or so decided it was done working for me. I
    recv the following error:

    [root@LINUXBOX /]# smbclient -L devbox
    added interface ip=192.168.2.252 bcast=192.168.2.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
    wins_srv_died(): Could not mark WINS server 127.0.0.1 down.
    Address not found in server list.
    Connection to devbox failed

    Now clients excluding the RH9 box are winxp and win2k3. All windows clients
    can see each other but cant see the RH9 box. The RH box is listed as the
    WINS server for the subnet.

    Relivent info pulled from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    ---------------------------------------------------
    netbios name = LINUXBOX
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    hosts allow = 192.168.2. 127.
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    interfaces = 192.168.2.252/24
    interfaces = 192.168.2.252
    remote announce = 192.168.2.255
    local master = yes
    domain master = yes
    preferred master = yes
    wins support = yes

    I have tried adding 127.0.0.1 to the interfaces which gives the same result
    just with 127.0.0.1 instead.

    -A INPUT -s 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 137:139 -j
    ACCEPT

    I have also tried adding 127.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 above w/the same results

    any help appreciated




  2. Re: wins_srv_died() - Samba has left the building

    Turns out pblm was w/iptables. Adding the following fixed it.

    -A INPUT -i ! eth0 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
