This may be a very basic question, but I am not able to find a clear answer in the Samba documentation here or elsewhere on the net. For various reasons I am attempting to give a Linux machine a different name as a Samba host - i.e. not the name specified in /etc/hostname). Is such a thing possible?
In /etc/samba/smb.conf, it appears possible to specify the workgroup and the description, but not the name of the computer.
