Hi matt, thanks for the reply.

Whats very odd tho is why its started doing it all of a sudden.

Ive now upgraded it to latest samba, cleared all the tdb's down and its
still doing the odd thing of being really slow to logon / some times with
file access.

Though I will give that a try

Many thanks

Hi Ross,

I have seen this one and even asked at a conference about it.  Check the
Windows box schannel settings and make certain they jibe with the ones in
your smb.conf.  I did this and saw a speed increase off the bat.  I make
certain client and server schannel is set to yes in Windows and Samba.
