Hi All,

This is probably a very basic question, so I apologise in advance…

I having  real fight with CIFS. Whenever the the server is rebooted the server name for Alfresco  gets duplicated preventing connection from a remote machine.

Having read the posts already on this forum on a similar subject I've tried changing the hostname in file-server.xml and restarted lanmanserver, this solves the problem as far as usability is oncerned until the next reboot, a which time the new host name is duplicated preventing connection.

Here's the output rom nbtstat -n on the server

                NetBIOS Local Name Table

       Name               Type         Status
    ———————————————
    SERVER         <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    NORFOLK        <00>  GROUP       Registered
    SERVER         <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ALFRESCO-SERVER<20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ALFRESCO-SERVER<00>  UNIQUE      Registered

Both server and remote are windowsXP SP2. It's a standard P2P network run on one workgroup and subnet with only a max 5 machines, so nothing complex.

Any thought / recommendations / advice onhow to solve this problemwould be gratefully received.

Thanks

Keith
