Bug Description

I change the name of computer in Sistema/red (spanish version) and after I install SAMBA by Aplicaciones/añadir y quitar but Samba dosn't work: Windows don't see Linux and Linux don¡t see Windows machine.

After some re-install I read that Linix don't recognize your name as server and I try to change the name at same os initial install.

Donc Samba Work. But if I change the name dosen't work.

The problem arises when changing the name in the equipment in the network properties. as of that moment, although it is reinitiated seems that Samba is not able to see the new own equipment with the new name.

El problema me surge al cambiar el nombre en el equipo en las propiedades de red. a partir de ese momento, aunque se reinicie parece que Samba no es capaz de ver el nuevo propio equipo con el nuevo nombre.
