CIFS Windows Server \\servername Error \\servername\alfresco Works

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
    ---------------------------------------------
    WIN2016SVR     <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ENROGEN        <00>  GROUP       Registered
    WIN2016SVR     <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ENROGEN        <1C>  GROUP       Registered
    ENROGEN        <1B>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ALFRESCOCIFS   <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ALFRESCOCIFS   <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    
10.8.23.16:

    ENROGEN        <1B>  UNIQUE      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.

Re: CIFS Windows Server \\servername Error \\servername\alfresco Works

1) cifs.bindto is only applicable to SMB TCPIP not the JNI

2) Unable to browse on localhost fixed by creating dummy hosts entry as above, which does not bypass firewall for localhost address

//Alfrescocifs brows not working vs //alfrescocifs/alfresco works, is unresolved.
