I've searched around throught the documentation, but I can't find 
anything relating to the error message "Supplied buffer too small in 
API command".  I have SAMBA installed on seven HP 9000 boxes running 
HP_UX 10.20, and they are working fine.  I installed SAMBA on another 
box yesterday using a cloned smb.conf file, and now I can't connect 
from Windows 95 to the new box. I try doing the connect by a "find 
computer", then map the drive.  I ran a testparm for the smb.conf and 
everything looks good.

Here is a chunk of the log file, that seems to be relevant to the

Can anyone point me in the right direction??
