I have a strange problem with my samba 2.2.1a on Solaris 2.6. One share has suddenly stopped working while others work normally. When browsing the share from windows, explorer will hang.

I have wide links enabled in samba and the files on the problematic share [ns0_1] may be accessed if I create a symbolic link from a working share.

The smb.conf file is as follows:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = NAPA
        netbios name = NS0-SAMBA
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = * 
        wins server =
        kernel oplocks = No
        hosts allow = 146.161.200.
        oplocks = No
        level2 oplocks = No
        deadtime = 15
        browseable = No
        writeable = Yes
        path = /ns0_1
        valid users = # user list not included in this post
        invalid users = root
        read only = No
        create mask = 0764
        directory mask = 0775

        path = /ns0_2
        copy = ns0_1

        path = /ns0_3
        copy = ns0_1
