Hi,

I did a fresh install on FreenNAS and did not imported the configuration file. I imported the pool and added a share. I found out that nmbd is having trouble. Here is the log:

[2019/05/28 20:36:32.564771, 0] ../source3/lib/util_sock.c:396(open_socket_in)
bind failed on port 137 socket_addr = 192.168.0.255.
Error = Can't assign requested address
[2019/05/28 20:36:32.564839, 0] ../source3/nmbd/nmbd_subnetdb.c:127(make_subnet)
nmbd_subnetdb:make_subnet()
Failed to open nmb bcast socket on interface 192.168.0.255 for port 137. Error was Can't assign requested address
[2019/05/28 20:36:32.564868, 0] ../lib/util/become_daemon.c:124(exit_daemon)
exit_daemon: STATUS=daemon failed to start: NMBD failed when creating subnet lists, error code 13

I wonder if it is normal for the IP to end with 255 (server ip is 192.168.0.95)

The reason I did a fresh install was because I had the same problem (didn't check the log then, but other symptoms were similar). So could be something on the network?? Anyone knows what could cause this?

Thank you.
