RE : [Samba] OOT : Puzzling

It is not a Samba issue, but a RH9 one.
Try to replace in /etc/sysconfig/i18n the default charset utf8 to something easier (and faster) to handle for the system (look at the same file on your RH73).

	Hi Wayne,

	What does ifconfig tell you?

	XP (C:) ->> Samba (Z:) 928 MB folder 3 mins
	You smb.conf tells us other things:
	hosts allow = 192.168.50. 192.168.1. 127.
	bind interfaces only = TRUE
	Leave this one out unless you really know what to use it for.
	#interfaces = eth0 eth0:1 lo
	interfaces =
	You talk about but use the adress. Check
	your IPs on the Samba box and on the XP box and edit your smb.conf to
	the right "interfaces" and "hosts allow" options. To make it easier
	use the line
	interfaces = eth0 eth1
	and leave out the "bind interfaces"-line. It will bind to your subnets
	nicely, you avoid typos and readjusting smb.conf when changing IPs.
	Did you map Z: to the [Oasis]-share ?
	> [Oasis]
	>    comment = Oasis Data & Programs
	>    path = /thelook/Oasis
	>    public = yes
	>    writable = yes
	>    printable = no
	>    write list = @oasis
	>    force create mode = 0770
	>    force group = +oasis
	>    oplocks = False
	>    level2 oplocks = False
	>    blocking locks = no
	With the last 3 options you basically set your performance down.
	Drastically. I donZt know if you really want them to be set like this.
	At least I would comment them out for testing.
	Do your log-files say something special? Set "log level" to 1 or 2 and
	look at your files. Compare the results for the 2 installations.
	On the other hand, what do you mean by "If I replace the mirrored SCSI
	drive with a SCSI drive..." ? Might it be simply a difference in
	harddisk performance? (Again, let the locking-parameters away and let
	the OS do its work handling the locks ...)
	Let us know more details ...
	best regards,
