I've a simple setup where a Solaris 8 server running Samba 3.0.4 serves
out a single share. User authentication is done through Windows Active
Directory servers. This has been working fine with a Windows client
where the user can map the share without any problems. The user has now
setup a new Windows server and is failing to map the share. I can see
the following error message in the samba log file:

tdb(/usr/local/samba/private/secrets.tdb): tdb_lock failed on list 53
ltype=2 (Interrupted system call)
[2007/02/27 10:32:31, 0]
  tdb_chainlock_with_timeout_internal: alarm (10) timed out for key
SAMBAPWDSVR1 in tdb /usr/local/samba/private/secrets.tdb

Here is my Samba config file:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = DOMAIN1
        netbios name = PRODSERVER
        server string = Samba Server
        security = server
        map to guest = Bad User
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = sambapwdsvr1 sambapwdsvr2
        password level = 8
        username level = 8
        max log size = 1024
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        dns proxy = No
        wins server =
        dead time = 2
        interfaces = PRODSERVER/
        bind interfaces only = yes

        # set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a
        # browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules
        domain master = no
        local master = no
        preferred master = no
        os level = 0
        max connections = 5000

        comment = Business Objects
        valid users = cen.busobj
        read only = no
        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0750

Any ideas/suggestions would be gratefully received.
