Last update of samba, pushed on extra - instead of testing - is breaking share access.
See this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=254083
Only fix for now? Downgrading samba.
This is one of those rare occurrences when an update breaks critical server functionality for some older environments. Samba 4.11 disables SMB1 by default for the first time. I have old clients in backoffice roles that
still use it.
I don't know if my shares are using SMB1 protocol, but I got python errors like in this bug: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/64537
Only real fix is to upgrade to samba 4.12.x.
Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and add
client min protocol = NT1 server min protocol = NT1
to the global section to restore workgroups and SMB1
No luck here:
$ ls /etc/samba/ 14:03:08 private
There is no /etc/smb.conf file. Archlinux needs to push Samba 4.12.x. Nothing less, nothing more.
Pushing a 4 months old development version is weird.
