I have a small office network consisting of a few PCs and one Ubuntu server that we use for file sharing as well as a minidlna server for our music. Everything was working just fine until I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04. Now none of the Windows machines can see the Ubuntu server on the network. I've exhausted all the so-called "fixes" that I can find and nothing seems to work. I've spent a week and many many hours searching for and implementing different "fixes" all to no avail.
I've performed all the steps outlined here (https://devanswers.co/discover-ubuntu-machines-samba-shares-windows-10-network/) and still not seeing the server. The DLNA service works fine still, but we cannot see the drives we use to store files.
There are no other symptoms. The server works fine otherwise. This is driving me nuts! Please help!
Here are the entries in the config file:

There are a lot more entries but it's difficult formatting them here.
