I have samba 2.1 (last month cvs) working as a PDC
on a linux machine.
Everything works fine except for the connection (opening
a session), which is very slow.
Login could take up to 5minutes.
Making the samba server a slave NIS server helped a lot,
however it still gets extremely slow when several (>20) users
try to login at the same time.
This problem occurs only when there are many users in the NIS
(there are about 300 workstations entries, and 1800 users entry).
Is there something I can on the samba side to make the login quicker ?
I don't think it's just a NIS problem, since the authentication of
using Linux is fast.
