[Samba] Samba & AutoCAd 2005

   I have same setup here; all the CAD standards and profiles are loaded 
in to AutoCAD using SAMBA shares, CAD project files are also accessed 
from SAMBA shares. This generates very heavy traffic over network and 
this is I/O bound operation; you should have sufficient RAM at both 
server and client side. Your AutoCAD should be update with all service 
packs and CAD fixes released by Autodesk. The problem you are talking 
about should be related to AutoCAD or possibly some network issues and 
not with SAMBA; as this happens when user executes certain command.
  Make sure that AutoCAD is configured properly in case you are using 
some CAD standards/customizations and file paths should not be missing.

Thank you.
