2.0.4a: Problem with credentials caching?

thanks for the quick response. smb.conf contains

         security = USER
         encrypt passwords = Yes
         guest account = guest
         hosts allow = <some IP>
         printing = bsd

 [typical share]
         comment = blah
         path = /path
         read only = No
         create mask = 0765

I know how to activate debug, but as I cannot reproduce the problem here I'd
appreciate some hints for the customer on what to look for in the debug log

If it starts working after a time it's not likely to be
an encrypted password issue.

What method of Samba authentication is the customer using ?

(ie. what is the "security=" line set to in the smb.conf).

You can set the Samba debug log level higher by hitting a
running smbd with a SIGUSR1, or start it with the -d<number>
option. Level 10 is usually the highest useful level.

Hope this helps,

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
