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 yesterday 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 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?
