How long do you usually have to wait, until someone responds?
The below message is my issue.

Subject: semiphore timeout expired error

I have a  Samba 2.7 running on a Solaris, and things will be fine, and
then all of a sudden, it's not working and when I try to connect to the
samba share I get a, "semiphore timeout..." error.   And then after a
day or sometimes just hours, it fixes. 
The inconsistency is making it hard to role out a Unix server of ours to
compete with a Windows server. Any ideas?
