Hello Don,

    Hi Iulian,
    the revalidate parameter has been depreciated in the 2.2.x branch
    (ie, it doesn't exist anymore).

    Hello Samba experts,
    I have a simple problem: i tried to use according to ch06_03.html manual
    page, directive revalidate in smb.conf config file.
    In smb.conf, i use directive security = share, but for a particular
    share (grant aces with user and pass) i want to use revalidate = yes
    option. The problem is that this feature is not working!
    1. i used testparm to check the smb.conf file, and it said that: bad
    sintax..... revalidate = yes in config file, ignoring.
    2. First time when its share is accessed from a win98 computer, the
    password is checked and memored. 
    3. In ch06_03.html i can read:
    For other shares, Samba appends the username to a list of users who are
    allowed access to the share. It then attempts to validate the password
    given in association with that username. If successful, Samba grants the
    user access to the share with the rights assigned to that user. The user
    will not need to authenticate again unless a revalidate = yes option has
    been set inside the share.
    In conclusion: is a bug or this feature is disabled for this time in
    this version? I checked also the latest 2.2.5 version and the same
    Exist any posibility to re-authenticate users each time it try to access
    a shared resource?
    Any suggestion will be appreciated.
