Hi Richard,

I'm affraid that I can't remove the mac from the equation, we produce
the contents from mac workstations and they are ment to use the file server.
I can try to update this one with 10.9 and see what happens.This is not
the first time I have issues with mac's version of samba and I know by
experience that finding a way to solve things in mac's world is not the
easiest task.
I do thank you all for your time, helping me to find the source of the
problem is a huge help to me as it gives me the chance to look in the
right place and remove the suspicious from the server.
I'll keep digging and let you know what solution I can get.
