Good morning,

I have a problem and I am unsure whether it's anything to do with Samba.
We use Samba on HP-Unix in conjunction with a product from rational called
Occasionally from getting to our NT Desktops to our Unix environment
Powerbuilder Files( which are binary files)
get reduced down to 0 size, this gets saved and we end up losing our work.

I am not expecting you to solve the problem or even make any suggestions.
But Rational seem to be suggesting that it's Samba that might be the problem
Could you tell me if you've heard of any problems with powerbuilder files,
or any files like powerbuilder.

Below are some of our system details.

We do use NFS and also Samba v2.0.7 to manage the NT to Unix
PowerBuilder is on the NT Client
Hp-Unix is version 11

Let me know if you can help
