The machine in question has the netbios name of ‘netclient015 so that part is correct. However, there are no shares set up. There used to a shared directory but since a fresh install over a month ago I have not had the need for a share so not set it up.NETCLIENT015 (File Sharing)
This same entry appears twice in the network tab of each of the other machines on my LAN. None of the links lead anywhere. If I try I get a message saying
All of the machines in question have been shut down each night and booted up again in the morning .Unable to mount location.
Failed to retrieve share list from server: Invalid argument
Why do these entries appear twice. There was only ever one share?
Why do the other machines in my LAN each shew the same two entries?
Has anyone got any ideas please?
All machines are running 64 bit Mint Cinnamon. Two are 20.1 the other 18.3 Sambas is installed on all three machines. None of the machines have any version of Windows installed (Ugh!). Here is the output of testparm -s on the machine netclient015.
