FW: [Samba] Problem updating/creating files with winbind and a wi n2k box

It appears that whenever the winbind process is running on my Solaris 8 machine,
I can't perform a long listing of the test share that I created (that is local
on the Solaris machine).  However, if I turn the winbind process off, then I can
get the results of a long listing (ls -l).

Also, when winbindd is running, it is eating up about 45% of the CPU.  I have
double checked the linking of the winbind libraries, my nsswitch.conf file, and
made sure that nscd is not running.  I can successfully run wbinfo -t, wbinfo
-u, wbinfo -g, getent passwd, and getent group.  I do not have a ld.config file
if that is a problem.  It would seem that winbind checks the local winbind_idmap
database and then returns the correct UID information associated with a file
almost instantly.

passwd: files winbind
shadow: files
group:  files winbind

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Subject: [Samba] Problem updating/creating files with winbind and a win2k box


I'm having a strange issue with Samba 3.0.1 running on Solaris 8, and
updating/creating files on a Win2k machine.  I have a test share created on the
Solaris machine (path=/export) with initially no files in it.

I have no problem accessing the test share from the Win2k machine.  I can
successfully create/update a file in the test share from the Win2k machine.  The
problem occurs when I get on the Solaris machine and try to do a long listing of
all of the files in the test directory (/export) to look at the permission.  I
can perfrom a normal "ls" command and "cat" command, but a "ls -l" never returns
an answer:  

# pwd

# ls

# cat win2000.txt
This is a win 2000 test

# ls -al

If I reboot my Solaris box, and perform the same "ls -l" command, then I can see
all of the information that I am supposed to see.  However, If I attempt to
update the file again, then the same issue occurs when doing a long listing.  It
appears that after an update occurs, the Solaris machine cannot return the
information from winbind to display the owner and group of the win2000.txt file.

Has anyone else ever experience this issue?
