I have 3 RPi B's with V2 cameras attached to a windows domain network (Server 2012 R2). All of the RPi's are visible on the network by name (RPi1, RPi2, RPi3) and can be connected by RDP from the Windows 7 computers and the Server. Each of the RPi's has a shared folder. JPGs from these shared folders will be processed into time lapse movies by a PC.
Although the 3 RPi's are visible on every Win7 computer, only one RPi's share can be accessed by two of the Windows 7 computers. The other computers can access the shares on all three RPi's. I've tried editing the SMB.conf on the 2 invisible pi's and have gone so far as to copy the smb.conf from the visible one to the others to no avail.
The only way I have been able to get all the shares visible on the 2 recalcitrant Win 7 computers is to type the full path to the share in the dialog box in the START menu of the two Win 7 computers. The names of the RPi's have been set up in Raspi-config, and those names are visible on all the PC's
This is a subtle problem that has been driving me crazy! Any ideas? Incidentally the software on the 3 RPi's is the same.
