I've installed a Samba server using Ubuntu Server as the OS. When the computer starts, smbd and nmbd both start correctly. However, if I go to a client and type:

$ smbclient -L feynman

I get:

Enter chris's password: 
Connection to feynman failed (Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL)

If I then go to the server and restart the smbd service, it works correctly.

I have the server configured to share a USB drive; is it possible that it's starting before the USB drive is available?

I don't see anything interesting in smbd.log.
