Hello folks,

after having trouble with samba1.9.17alpha5 and VC5.0
I found some things out about the differences between samba1.9.16p9 and

1) the problems with VC5.0 under NT4 SP3 seems to go away when I commented out
all tuning options which
I used sucessfully with samba1.9.16p9:

; Tuning options
  read raw=yes
  write raw=yes
  socket options=TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192
  read prediction=true

2) NT looses with alpha5 if the option "fake oplocks=yes" in a service
and then tried to copy a large structure of directorys.
Error form NT: "To many open files, try to close some appplications".

3) Under win95 and roving profiles and a loginscript.bat you can't use the
"net time /set /yes" command, this kills the execution of the loginscript and
produces the already described error:

"Couldn't write to \\<sambaserver>\NOBODY\...." win 95 report's on login and

An unresolved problem remains: win95 hangs while logging out from the samba
server which act as domain logon server.

Any comments ?

Thanks for any help/suggestions.
