I have a 120 PC netwaork at work and I'm using samba 1.9.17p4 on a linux 2.0.32. Previously, I was using
Netware 4.10 and I plan to replace it step by step by Linux/Samba (I have Unix and W95 clients).
All samba shares either on a local or on a remote machine are working perfectly fine. But I also have some share
on some directories exported by the netware server (in NFS mode,of course). When I try to create a directory vi explorer with a long name on those directories, I'v got an error saying that the newly created dir is not available.
For 20 seconds, with explorer, I cannot ChangeDir to it. After 20 seconds, everything si ok. When I set the
related debug levels in Samba, I see that every change dir made by explorer fails within 20 seconds afterwhat everything is
ok. Unfortunaterly, this doesn't give me more informations ...
I tried to change a lot of stuff in smb.conf, without success. Of course, I guess the problem is on the netware side,
but the thing is I never experienced this with other clients, using long directory names on a NFS exported netware directory.
Thanks for your help
