The "windows network" tab depends on an election to happen between the smb servers, and a master browser being elected. It's the master browser that is contacted for the list of machines in the network. If that machine has smb1 disabled, for example, then this won't work, because it will hit #1828107 (that's my understanding).
I suggest to focus on the test case presented in the bug description. If there are still cases where it doesn't work, then it's a separate bug, because disco has the same fix in place as we are applying here. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Server, which is subscribed to samba in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1778322 Title: gvfs-smb-browse can't browse samba/smb tree To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gvfs/+bug/1778322/+subscriptions -- Ubuntu-server-bugs mailing list Ubuntufirstname.lastname@example.org Modify settings or unsubscribe at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-server-bugs
