    Windows 10 Network Discovery Problem with Ubuntu/Samba Server


    I have a problem that has me stumped. I have a Ubuntu Media Server (OS Version 14.04.1) running Samba 4.1.6. I have a Win 10 laptop (upgraded in August from 8.1) and Win 10 desktop (upgraded Jan 11th from Windows 7). The laptop doesn't (or very rarely) discovers the Samba shares. Windows sees the two other Windows PC's under the Network section. It doesn't seen to recognize the printer attached to the server. Print jobs seem to disappear into nowhere even though the printer is "there" under devices. It is also seen in Belarc Advisor. It does, however, always recognize the mapped drives of the 3 individual Samba shares on the server. It also discovers the Plex Media Server I have installed. It is under the Media Devices Section in Network. The desktop under both Win 7 and 10 discovers both the Network shares and the samba shares (and the network printer) connected to it as well as the Plex Media Server. I've attempted to match setting for setting from the desktop to the laptop (Advanced Sharing Options), but that hasn't solved the problem. Because it works on one system and not the other, I don't see where my Samba configuration is the problem. Anyone have any ideas?

    There is a fix to disable SMB 2 & 3 on Windows. It is on a past thread and should be in the tutorials.

    Tried one method - it didn't work. Then ran across this ongoing discussion at Microsoft: Cannot connect to CIFS / SMB / Samba Network Shares Shared Folders in Windows 10 after update 1511/10586 Used one of these - and viola! It works (for now) until the boys in Redmond hose it up again.

    I wanted to blame M$ for it as well however after some research I found several servers were claiming to be Master Browsers. I logged on to those servers (yes Linux boxes) and set local master = no in the global confs and the rest of my network browse function worked.

    The program I used to discover this was Scottie's LANscanner v1.63... You can run the tool and check your net. Thanks Scottie....
