comment Why is Ubuntu resolving non-existent names to a local machine?
@solsTiCe Yep, I get that. I'd still like applications on my Ubuntu machine to resolve names in the same way as every other machine.

comment How to disable shutdown or reboot in 14.04 when users are connected via SSH?
@muru I don't think the LightDM login screen runs as an admin user though...? (Edit: just tried as non admin user, same thing. Shuts down.)

comment How to disable shutdown or reboot in 14.04 when users are connected via SSH?
@muru Although, now that I try it, it doesn't work for me. Contents of /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/restrict-shutdown.pkla are exactly what you have there, logged in via SSH, can still shut down via LightDM. Are there permissions I need to set on this file, or packages I need to install?

comment Connection to a Noontec N5 NAS problem
@navhaxs and OP: see my self-answered question on this. Basically, you need to force NTLM auth, not NTLMv2.

Hah, that's okay! It made me realise that where SMB is concerned, there's a lot more stuff going on under the hood than the simpler tools expose.
