Problems after moving Samba PDC to new machine
I am having some probs since moving my Samba PDC server to a new machine.
Previously CentOS 5.3 32bit Samba 3.4.13, now CentOS 6.4 64 bit Samba 3.6.9.
I replicated users and groups matching UID and GID
used rsync to copy /etc/samba and homes
set the local sid to match old server
set the domain sid to match old server
mapped Domain Users, Admins & Guests to the same unix groups as before
Converted Unix Users to Samba users (not sure this was needed or right)
I did all of the above when I had to rebuild the old server & had no problems, the domain just worked.
Initially I had folders with no files but then realised selinux was enabled so sorted that. No firewall running at all yet as once samba is working I want to set up a vpn. Only other thing different is the machine's unix hostname (samba all the same, using same smb.conf)
I can see the new server from it's IP address and users are authenticated and get access to folders they should but the server cannot be found by its netbios name (unimaginatively \\server). Winbindd does not seem to be starting on the new server so I started it manually then started samba but no luck.
Any body have ideas where I have gone wrong and why its not working?
Thanks in advance.
