Currently having a strange issue whereby my Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Server does not appear on the network on first boot after being shut down. I am able to connect to the server using the assigned IP, but not via the NetBIOS name.
I am using
sudo shutdown -h now to perform a safe shutdown and power off the system.
Currently, I have tried to troubleshoot the problem by restarting the samba service and restarting networking but neither of these attempts allow the server to be seen on the network.
The only thing that seems to fix the problem is if I restart the server after it boots successfully for the first time.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm at a total loss here.
