Hello samba gurus !
I'm using samba 3.0.21c on AIX 5.3 box .
I've specified deadtime=15 in my smb.conf file and I'm expecting that
inactive sessions ( has no open files ) will be
closed after 15 minutes . I'm connecting to samba from my PC
( win2000 ) , minimizing the window and waiting
15 minutes ... but nothing happens - smbd opened by my connection is
still running , window on my workstation
still usable and not closed ...
I've found in documentation that this option should disconnect the
session , but almost all clients has auto reconnect
feature , so what is the reason to use deadtime option ?????
Could you please advise how I can totally disconnect inactive sessions
- I mean kill smbd on the server and close the
window on the client ? We have almost 100 samba sessions on that box
and sometimes smbd processes
takes to many system resources .
Thanks a lot in advance ,
Michael Mikolyuk .
