Hello Members,

I am able to achieve samba sharing. But when I copy any file in the shared folder from windows network, I get this error

[1970/01/02 17:21:15.138669,  0] ../source3/lib/util.c:785(smb_panic_s3)

Due to this reason I am unable to copy the desired file in the shared folder. Any help to resolve this issue will be highly appreciated.

Thanks & regards,
