Hi Bernd,

For now, we have backed down to 2.2.4.  This seems to have solved our 
problems.  This is frustrating, though, since we wanted to upgrade to
at least 2.2.5+patches to possibly improve our situation with
downloadable printer drivers.

In my last post to the Samba mailing list, I mentioned that
downgrading to 2.2.4 fixed my problems and asked for suggestions,
but yours has been the only reply.  Of course, this was right before
the holidays, so I don't know how many actually saw that post or have
even had the chance to think about it.

Are you on HP-UX 11.x or 10.20?  My systems are running mainly 11.0
and 11i, with a couple of exceptions.  For 11.x systems, we might try
using HP's CIFS/9000 server, since it is basically Samba with more
integration/qualification with HP-UX.  The last time I looked at it,
it was based on a rather old release of Samba, but I believe that it
is now much closer to the latest stable Samba release.

Thanks for your input.  I may have the chance in a week or so to give
CIFS/9000 a try.  I will update you and the list if I do.

Best Regards,

Hi Dave,

we have exactly the same problems since upgrating our HP-UX server to
But not with Labview. We have those problems when several users use
Microsoft applications.

If you have a solution, could you please tell me?

Thank You,
