Hi, are about to roll out Samba to 2600 users and 1500+ machines and have a
slight problem.

Server: Samba 3.4.9 running on ubuntu 10.04
Client: Windows 7, 32 and 64 bit on various hardware

The problem is that logging in takes time and much of it seems to be the
Windows 7 client just waiting. While 2 minutes may sound pretty ok this is
without any roaming profiles or GPO applied.

The logs shows nothing interesting ,on Windows i see error 6005 and 6006
but thats just a standard logging when things take a long time, can be
anything. On a wireshark trace nothing in perticulat comes up before the
long timeouts. Anyone else who has seen this problem after applying the
various remedies on this mailing list and from other places on the internet?

Thankful for any input.

With best regards,
Daniel Hedblom
