Sounds like typical DNS issues.  Is the new server a DNS server as well, or is the old server still running?

    Hi Samba, 
    I have been using Samba 2.0.6 for about 6 months (Mandrake 7.1 dist.) as a PDC on a home network. All Windows clients (95, 98 and one NT), about 6 PC's all told. It has been very stable and has done a great job.

    I am now setting up a new server using 2.0.7 (Mandrake 7.2 dist) and have used the same smb.conf file for the new server. This will replace the existing server. I seem to have a problem that I can't sort out. After restarting Samba, the first client can log-in, and sometimes a second client but then no more. The log.smb indicates an IPC error (I don't know what it is referring to?). I checked the notes on changes for 2.0.7 and can't find anything that may be causing my problem.

    I have attached the smb.conf and log.smb files. The only change I made to the conf file was to increase the logging. 

    I don't know if this is a bug with 2.0.7, but it is causing me some problems here. 

    Regards Phill Dew
