I am having trouble with a samba server version 2.2.5 on SuSe 8.1.
Very often my samba processes get to state D and can't be killed
The clients seem to continue to connect and so I get even more dead
These processes can't be killed, all I can do is reboot the machine.
I have looked on the internet, quite a few posts regarding that problem,
no real solutions.
Do you think an update to a new samba version could help?
The smbd is called through inetd with the following line in inetd.conf:
netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/smbd
smbd -l /var/log/samba
All shares are on a RAID controller using ReiserFS.
I decided to not start nmbd. Could this be the problem?
Another problem I have
Whenever I connect to the linux box within a Windows Explorer (our
are Win XP and Win 2K) the first time, it is listed in the workgroup
Could this problem be connected to that or would could I do to change
(starting nmbd did not change anything)
Thanks for the help in advance
