Hi folks,
Intermittenly samba hangs and will not allow any more connections from any client
regardless your OS. Looking at the samba.log file and errors in it, I wasn't able to determine
what is the real and what's not, could not really find anything here eaither that would tell
me what could be cause of this behaviour.
examples from samba.log file, not sure, though, that these would indicate what real
problem is.
set_delete_on_close_internal: failed to change delete on close flag for file
  getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected

on a server ps -ef |grep smb shows active processes, also nmbd daemon's running.
the intermittent solution has been to stop samba, make sure all smb/nmb processes are gone
and restart samba running /etc/init.d/samba start
./smbd -V
