Samba - Server String not being updated

Hi,

 

I have just recently upgraded from Samba (server) A.02.04.01 to A.02.04.05 but my server string when connecting is still showing the old version.

 

Please see attached documentation for screenshots

 

Is there anything I need to do for this to be fixed.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mark Parsons.

Re: Samba - Server String not being updated

i could be mistaken....but i don't think the name for the mapped drive on the pc is dynamic.

 

have you tried mapping another drive on this pc?

 

(i usually make the mapped drive name short-n-sweet....)

Hi,

 

I think you'll find Windows stores those drive definitions in its Registry.    

 

FWIW, the user can "rename" the drive (right-click on it and select Rename).

 

I'm not aware of a way to force the client to update it based on the new server comment.

 

HTH,

 

Paul
