Hi everybody,

I'm bumping this issue, because I have new insights in the matter, but still
no elegant solution.

The Windows 7 and 8.1 machines (using SMB2 and SMB3 protocols) are going off
before the logout process is completed.
If the user makes ONLY A LOGOFF, it takes about 20-30 seconds until his smbd
disappears from the list (smbstatus -b), without leaving locked files.

This never happened in the old NT domain.
Still now with AD, it is no problem if I directly shutdown a WindowsXP
(connected with NT1 protocol)

- client max protocol = NT1 (on the member file server) and
... won't be honored.

The Windows 8.1 machines will still connect with SMB3. How to let them
connect with NT1 (even only for a test)?

Any thoughts further?
