Hopefully I can draw on everyone experience for this one.
I recently upgraded one of our servers from Solaris 2.5.1 to 2.6. For
some insane reason ( actually was the only time I could ) i decided to
update the head branch source as well. Was because I knew the samba
update would break all profiles and this was actually the only time i
could do it.
So now I am experiencing stabiulity problems on samba. Most seems to be
categorized as the second nmbd process dieing ( the ont that preforms
the gethostbyname() stuff ). Obvously the Samba PDC is also acting as a
Some symptoms on the clients include dropping connections to the server
and complaining about an invalid password when trying to reconnect. Let
me clarify that I am logged into the NT box, the connection gets dropped
and without logging out I try...
C:\> net use
Disconnected H: \\server\homes
C:\> net use h: /d
C:\> net use h: \\server\homes
You can replce the share in the above example with any valid one you
wish. My question is this.
Has anyone experienced similar problems on Solaris 2.6 or is it the
current state of the NTDOM code?
Thanks in advance,
