First a short background of the situation,
My work ran a MYOB file from a MS 2000 server. They were getting problems
such as the,
"cannot send messages to so-and-so. blah blah blah..."
They were planning to upgrade to MS 2003 in an attempt to eradicate all
error messages and remove the lag sometimes experienced when opening a large
Since i am a linux fan i suggested giving samba 3.0.11 a try, i was
convinced it would be an improvement. After all Linux is the best right.
After installing samba 3.0.11 on fedora core 3 and getting everybody access
to the MYOB file it is found that there are just as many or more of those
error messages and the lag is as bad as ever.
Does anyone know of a way to optimise Samba to quicken access to the MYOB
file and prevent those error messages.
Part of the smb.conf
path = /home/shared
writable = yes
valid users = @office root
force create mode = 666
force create user = root
force create group = office
oplocks = false
level2 oplocks = false
My boss is starting to get a bit impatient, even worse we will have to take
on MS 2003 Server if the speed issues are not sorted out.
