When using DHCP, Samba can't see to resove MY hostname.
I did a network install of 3.3 FreeBSD, I'm a newbie.
Selected DHCP for my TCP-IP protocal to use over the net.
When I installed SAMBA during post install proceedures, I used
very simple FreeBSD install instrucitons. I've used Samba before
on Linux so somewhat framiliar.
I have kd5ob in my hosts file as my hostname 10.0.0.1 kd5ob
When you run the testconfig program as described in Samba manual
for smb.conf you see it's telling you can't resolve hostname.
Further attempting to start samba.sh shows no error message yet
my service isn't listed anywhere on any other NT machine.
I don't have enough experience with DHCP to know what's going on.
I have a host name of kd5ob entered in my hosts file....
I just don't know.
