I am running Samba 2.2.8a.  My XP and 2000 boxes take a long time to log off. They appear to be saving profiles. The Windows 98 and XP/2000 workgroup boxes log off quick as a bunny. It the slow log off because XP/2000 domain members must push all their settings to the Samba server or is there a problem with my Samba installations?  I have three discrete Samba networks that all exhibit the same performance problems.

> Hello,
> I'm having a very strange problem with Samba version 2.2.7a.  I have
> four boxes,  Two Linux Mandrake Boxes (Morpheus and Unreal both v. 9.2),
> One RedHat (Link v. 8.0) and an XP Workstation (Kek XP Pro NO SP1).
> When I bring up My computer (Explorer) and attempt to browse through the
> H: drive (SMB Share mapped to Users Home dir on Morpheus), Y: drive (SMB
> Share maped to /backup on Unreal)
> It takes a veary, very long time to list the files on any of the mapped

> However with the task manager open I can launch a new task cmd.exe and

> Then after about 4 or 5 mintues, everything comes back to normal, it

> Sorry so long.
