    BUG Samba 4.11 so wont see shares NAS / LINUX users

    Hi folks

    There's a / several bug(s) reported (and I can concur) with current release of Samba (4.11.x)

    This will also affect Windows users if they want to access NAS or Linux servers using SAMBA where SAMBA has been upgraded to Version 4.11.x. where x is 1,2,3 etc. Version 4.10 .10 is my last working version -- so advice don't upgrade SAMBA if poss to 4.11 especially if you have any devices still using SMBV1.

    This will affect using things like Amazon fire sticks for streaming stuff from Computers / NAS, Phones, Tablets to smart TV's etc

    I think a lot of this is also caused by the latest Windows "Security" fixes in Networking -- I LIKE security --but not at the expense of it hosing up the Network !!!! . You might find also latest version (fast release) of Windows running as a VM may have problems accessing a NAS / Linux server too with some versions of SAMBA.

    Direct connection via IP address still works but it's a pain though.

    Best solution --stick to SAMBA 4.10.x until bug(s) is / are fixed.

    @martyfelker -- downgrade SAMBA on ArchLinux / Manjaro easy enough --use /var/cache/pacman.pkg and then block that package from update until bug fixed.

    Use command (as root) # pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/package-old_version.pkg.tar.xz

    (Also same for SMBCLIENT if you installed that too or you'll get a library conflict !!).

    For people with other NAS / Linux systems - you'll have to refer to the documentation for that particular OS.
