When I connect my PocketPC to my Samba server, the device has a very strange name in smblog:
netbios connect: local=server remote=_cerdrc9cb8005 _cerdrc9cb8005 (192.168.1.94) connect to service Music as user USER (uid=xxxx, gid=xxxx) (pid 44909)
"_cerdrc9cb8005" is just an example, the exact string changes. My other samba clients have "normal" names in the log.
Where is Samba getting this string from?
Note the part: _cerdrc9cb8005 (192.168.1.94)
I would guess that means _cerdrc9cb8005 is considered the hostname for IP address 192.168.1.94. Do you have a DHCP server setup? If not, the PocketPC may be picking a name out of thin air. That is what I would guess is happening.
However, I believe the message you're talking about is one that you can specify the format of. None of my logfiles look like the line that you have. (I'm running samba 2.2.8a). Check your smb.conf file and see what you have in that line.
(it might be that you ARE seeing the default line -- because I certainly do customize the messages on my server...)
