Description me 2004-04-01 11:17:13 UTC
We have a sql agent job (SQL Server 2000 on a Windows 2003 platform ) that BCP 
out using a UNC path through Samba to a linux box. The username and passowrd to 
connect is in a domain. For the most part, the job BCP (exports) out the output 
with no problem, however, in some instances, the permission/connection gets 
interrupted. The SQL agent auto sends a notification of the error of BCPing out 
the file, and once the notification is received, I go to the server where SQL 
Server resides, and try to connect to the Linux server where the file is being 
stored. I get a pop up box requiring me to enter the username and password, 
when I enter the username and password, it informs me that it's invalid. 
However, after a certain amount of time (sometimes only 5 mins, but other 
times, it's 1-2 hrs.), I get my permission/connection back, with the same 
username and password of course.

should already be fixed in 3.0.1 or later IIRC.
Comment 2 Ignasi Forcada 2005-07-07 07:10:56 UTC
This was reported as a bug in Samba 3.0.0 and I would be very much interested 
in knowing if you have found a solution for it, since we have a similar 
behaviour with Samba 2.2.12. Could it just be a communication problem with the 
password server and not a bug in Samba?

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
