It only happens when the Samba server is =
under stress with a lot of connections. When this error occurs the =
workstation will break contact to the Samba server and corrupt the indexes =
on database files we use. Could it also be a network card driver not =
functioning properly? Guessing here.
Yes, I had this same problem, if not similar, just a few days after
getting my Samba server box installed and working as the new file server
in our office.
The problem ended when I changed-out of the LAN hubs (old non-fast 10
mbs) with new autosensing switches. Turns-out, the new file server was
too fast for the existing LAN infrastructure.
