changed in the smb.conf and nothing changed on the Windows side.  Figured
it was some change in a default value or a package that was now necessary.

I tried NT1 and the share was no longer visible from Windows.  Seems to be
working with SMB3.

> This fixed it.  The DirectoryCacheLifetime registry key did not exist on
any of the Windows machines on our network.  Once I added it and restarted
the view refreshed every time the share was accessed.  We've been using
these same machines for years and never had an issue until the upgrade.
