Hello Chan Min Wai,
feel free to ask, if you need more information.
Our problem was, that our workstations lost their network-connection for
a few seconds at irregular intervals. This did not happen simultaneously
and some workstations were more affected than others. At first I thought
the problem was related to samba. It was almost unnoticeable, when you
were working on a local account but it was sometimes quite annoying when
you were using a roaming profile, since windows doesn't react very well
on those short interrupts.
It took me quite some time and effort to relate it to dhcp-delays. I
never bothered to change the default-values of bind and I was quite
surprised, to find this in the /etc/named.conf file:
I've changed the values to:
12 hours as default lease-time and 48 hours max. That solved the problem
Nice regards, bbb

>> this message is just FYI. We're using samba4 with bind9 on ubuntu-server-edition with roaming-profiles. We had to deal with unpredictable disconnections, that were most noticeable by the sudden dissapearance of all desktop-icons and often also led to the loss of edited data. The problem turned out, to be caused by dhcp-negotiation-delays due to heavy network traffic. Perhaps this is already common knowledge, but I'd recommend anybody to try increasing bind's default lease-time if facing the same problem. The default value of 10 minutes is quite short. We were able to get rid of the problem by setting it to 12 hours.
