Hi out there,

since i updated to Samba 2.2.5 on Solaris 8 i've got a Problem with it.

The Samba-Server acts as PDC and it seems to work mostly well.

There is a Share for a Palm-User where i installed the Palmdesktop.
In order that the Sekretaty can also look to his Calender i wrote a small
Every Time the User starts the Palm desktop the Batchfile makes a copy of the
actual State and start the PalmDesktop then.
But just in that Moment my log.smbd expands very fast. And every Line contains
the same.

[2002/09/09 12:30:33, 0] smbd/open.c:open_directory(1176)
  open_directory: unable to stat name = Palm. Error was No such file or

I don't know why this error occurs but in the prior Installation i had no

Hope you can help me!
