We recently upgraded samba on our UNIX to version 1.9.18p1 partly
because sometimes users would become NOBODY rather than their username
and this was screwing up the permissions of the files they save or try to
But this version is doing it too. It seems to be random. Every so often
Ill run smbstatus and have a look and a handfull of users are logged on
These clients are various NT and 95 machines but this is happening to
Ive also found that Network drives become disconnected everyso often and
have to be remapped?

Can anyone help?  

Thanks very much
