Surely someone out there knows how to notify their
Windows users that access to their samba server is
going to be terminated....  

Any help will be *greatly* appreciated.

------ Original Message -------
I would like to shut down samba before I begin my
backup routine.  Before I do this, I would like to
send a message to the users who are logged in on their
Windows machines, asking them to log out.  I would
prefer this to be like a ShowMessage dialog box, if

Could anyone please tell me how I can do this?  A
Redhat tech support specialist told me he thinks this
is possible through samba or smb-client.

Do you Yahoo!?
