Hi Joseph

It sounds more like a vmware problem. How is the network configurated on
your vmware machine?

Best Regards Rune Tønnesen

>We have deployed Samba on VMware (ESX) on IBM Bladecenter H. I am having a serious problem with Samba related to Window client access. I can mount the samba share with no problem whatsoever and see all the files that exist within that share. However, when I try to open/write/copy/get properties on any file in either direction the operation stalls and eventually I will get a message similar to "Cannot copy <file>: The specified network name is no longer available." on the Windows client. We are running stock RHEL5 workstatiom with most packages installed (sound/telephony excluded). Our samba security is set to domain but this has also been tested with security set to user.
