Lo folks,

Plz i need some advice, im totally clueless at the moment where to look and what to do.
I have one samba 3.0.1 PDC and ten win 9x clients and two XP pro clients and one w2k print server with some shares.

It all worked good until i joined the w2k server into the domain. The first couple of hours after joining all shares and all printer were available on the win2k server. But then all of a sudden i couldnt see any shares from the w2k server on the netwerk.When i try to browse the w2k server shares via 9x clients i get a unknown error 31.
Even the ./smbclient -L //w2k/share -U aap doesnt let me see shares.

Sometimes after an hour orso the shares are again available, or else i have to stop and start samba.
What could be wrong, Does any1 have any suggestions?

Thx in advance
