Hi,

 

We are migrating Ubuntu Server to Windows...we are clearing down multiple machines onto a single platform. Unfortunately we need MS SQL, so windows won.

 

After much headache if have alfresco 5.2CE on its own NIC (10.8.23.16) as follows, its running on host win2016svr which has a second NIC (10.8.23.15)

 

cifs.bindto=10.8.23.16
cifs.enabled=true
cifs.serverName=AlfrescoCIFS
cifs.hostannounce=true

cifs.sessionDebug=NETBIOS, SOCKET, NOTIFY, ECHO

 

On the NIC for 10.8.23.16 I have also disabled "File and Printer Sharing" on the actual Adapter Card (not in advanced settings which leaves port 445 open), and for good measure firewalled 10.8.23.16:445

 

Problem Is

So from a CLIENT

\\AlfrescoCIFS\alfresco works

 

But

\\AlfrescoCIFS

Failed

 

And on Localhost neither work

Fixed on localshost for \\alfrescoCIFS\alfresco by adding dummy IP

192.168.188.188 AlfrescoCIFS to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

 

nbtstat shows << 2nd Problem WHY is it still available on other IP?

 

10.8.23.15:
Node IpAddress: [10.8.23.15] Scope Id: []

 

                NetBIOS Local Name Table

 

       Name               Type         Status

    ENROGEN        <00>  GROUP       Registered

    ALFRESCOCIFS   <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ALFRESCOCIFS   <00>  UNIQUE      Registered

 

Which is odd.... why is alfresco CIFS showing on 10.8.23.15... I think <20> is the File sharing?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.
