Hi ,

Before I copy and paste the oplock message(s), here is the setup I have.

I have samba server (on Solaris 2.8)  which shares out the NFS mounted
directories to the windows world.

All was working fine till today morning when users complained of extreme
slow performance , looks like there is problems with oplocks accessing some

Below is the snippet to the error log.

[2003/03/24 10:26:59, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(796)
  oplock_break: receive_smb timed out after 30 seconds.
  oplock_break failed for file alt-a/fnma_delivery/April
Securitization/Timeline.xls (dev = 3a8103f, inode = 133837, file_id = 159).
[2003/03/24 10:26:59, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(868)
  oplock_break: client failure in oplock break in file
alt-a/fnma_delivery/April Securitization/Timeline.xls

Any ideas to overcome the above problems?? any known issue or patch

I appreciate all inputs.

Thanks in advance.
