Dear List-

This error is appearing in my log.winbindd log file. The full error is
as follows:

user 'RAID' does not exist

user 'BAMBOO_LEAVES_SINGLE.TIF' does not exist

To clarify, there is no user by those names (i.e. raid,
on our DC, but there are share names/filenames; the full name/s of the
shares in
question being Raid1 and Raid2, with the UNC path looking something like


This error or some variation of it is appearing in the log file every 1
- 4 seconds,
corresponding presumably with some sort of read/write I/O operation. The

very heavy IO.

Previously, kerberos had failed due to a time drift on the NAS. That
problem has
since been corrected and Kerberos reports back as functioning correctly.

Samba version: samba-3.0.14
Linux Kernel: kernel-2.4.27-2.0.00
OS: REdhat 9.0

Has anyone on this list ever experience an occurrence like this?

Thanks in advance.
