First of all, sorry about my bad English.

I'm trying to use a Linux box with samba 3.0.4 configured as an standalone
file server.

I have a Cobol application (AcuCobol) that is running ok on Windows 98
workstations, with data files at Linux.

When I try to run the same application on a Windows 2000 / XP workstation,
the application starts to run, but suddenly it stops working and the cursor
becomes an hourglass. I think that it is because the workstation is waiting
for liberation of a file.

When I start the same application on a Windows 98 workstation at the same
option, the Windows 2000 workstation starts to run again, but it stops again
later (I think that it's because another workstation locks a file).

I tried to disable oplocks at samba and at Windows 2000, but it don't solve
the problem

The same behaviour occurred when I try to use RedHat 9 (Samba 2.2.7a).

When I start running this application with data files on a Windows 2000
Server, it works fine, so for a while :-{
I would have to let the data files on a Windows 2000 Server.

I really need some help. How can I diagnose this problem ?

Please, help me.

I'm using the above smb.conf:
