Hi all,

We just got Samba for OS/390 up and running and it works fine.
But we get a problem for some W95  PC's  when they try to establish a network 
connection, the debuglevel 10 shows the following messages :
file /etc/smb.conf -> /etc/smb.conf  last mod_time: Wed Nov 10 08:39:10 1999   
Scanning username map /etc/local/smb.usermap

error string = EDC5129I No such file or directory.                                   
....  and the session is not established.

When the same user tries to connect from another W95 PC with the same 
windows userid, or with smbclient on Linux, the session can succesfully be 
We have no idea where this "EDC5129I No such file or directory." comes from, 
it looks like the particular W95 machine tries to find/cd to a specific directory ?

Does anyone have a clue ?
