Description

After upgrading from 3.3.16 to 3-5-9 plus 3.5.11 I got the following error in nmbd.log:

added interface lan0 ip=192.168.178.20 bcast=192.168.178.255 netmask=255.255.255.0

ERROR: Failed when creating subnet lists. Exiting.

Adding the following line to smb.conf fixed this:

nmbd bind explicit broadcast = no

afair this setting is needed with 3.5 and up. At least I have this as well

Shouldn't the .wpi check for this line in samba.cfg? Or at least a mention in the read.me or wiki. When upgrading from an older version this setting will be missing.

The latest and greatest Samba has this same problem. The default configuration does -not- have the neccessary parameter.

It again needs the following line to be added to smb.conf: nmbd bind explicit broadcast = no

Steps to reproduce: Reset to default configuration in simple samba configuration centre.

same as #282 should be fixed with latest sscc.exe at r1019
