I encountered the following problem:

First I installed samba-server (1.9.18, supplied with Red Hat 5.2) and
everything worked fine. Then I added a DNS (named) at the same machine, just
as an experiment. Now samba became
unfriendly. The DNS seems to perform very well (nslookup), so I guess
nothing is wrong with /etc/resolv.conf. Also, no other smbds have been
started. Then I performed the 10 tests. On test 3 I got the "unfriendly"
message. Testparm didn't find any errors. Nmblookup also reported no
errors."smbclient '\\<server>\<dir>'" failed, as did "net view \\<server>"
and "net use x: \\<server>\<dir>". (Error 54: "The network is currently busy
processing other requests or is out of resources. Try again later, or verify
your network configuration to be sure that enough network resources are

If a connection had been established before named was started, then I could
access my share without problems. (???)

It probably is something really trivial, but I'm too much of a newbie to see
it. Please help.
