A Solaris 8 server acts as a file server in the domain, using Samba 3.0.11.
User authentication is done by another DC/(Win2K Server) via usermap. There are
more than 40 Win2K clients who need to access Samba.
I opened several share folders on SambaServer, for example, Service_A &
Service_B. Clients will frequently connect to both Service_A & Service_B. I
set deadtime to 1 minute to shutdown idle connections. So the connection will
be shutdown randomly depending on the idle time.
Sometime when a user click on \\SambaServer\Service_B with his explorer, the
content of \\SambaServer\Service_A is listed instead. The user has to wait
until the deadtime expires and try again and succeed. I set log level to 5,
and find no any clue either in the log file nor the source code. I am really
puzzled. Is it a netbios problem of Win2K system or a bug of Samba? (I met this
issue also when SambaServer is running Samba 2.0.7, but this never happened to
Another point is that when user_A logs off from a workstation, and another user
B logs on soon after that(the connection is not shutdown by Samba). User_B
could view the home directory of User_A on SambaServer, but actually this
directory is a fake directory, while clicking on it, it's directed to User_B's
home directory too.
Please retest against a current release and reopen if the issue is still present.
