[Samba] Samba DC issue.

I thought I might clarify something about this post: when I say "the server
is rebooted" I really mean the samba service, I'm not actually rebooting the
whole linux server.  Again, if I'm post this to the wrong list, could
someone let me know which list I should be posting too?? Thanks!



I'm trying to use samba (Version 2.2.3a-6 for Debian) as a DC for a windows
2000 pro network.  Everything seems to work OK, except the roaming profiles.
Every few days (I haven't locked down a pattern yet) all machines connected
to the server loose their connection, and no one can connect again until the
server is rebooted.  I'm using log level 3, and this is what log.smbd
repeats endlessly when the server is in this state....

Does anyone know why?  That dll file is no where to be found, on the Linux
system, or any of the windows 2000 machines.  If I should be posting this to
a different list please let me know...thanks...
