[Samba] Problems with GPO

 I assigned the permissions of authenticated users on the share, but the
problem persists.

I do tests outside of office hours and it always works and people who log
on to the network before the start of working hours have no problems. Thus,
I believe that this problem occurs in the first hour of the beginning of
the working day and then the mappings will return to work normally with the
GPO. All of my DCs and the file server are virtual machines on the KVM. The
DCs have 4GB RAM, 1GB Swap and 2 processors. The file server has 16GB RAM,
4GB Swap and 2 processors. I see that the servers have a little free RAM
due to the buffer cache. Example:

free -m

total used free shared buff / cache available

Mem: 16042 5628 169 68 10245 10016

Swap: 3999 3999 0

I can calmly increase the resources of the virtual servers, however I see
that if the buffer cache is released, the servers will still have enough
resources to use. So, the cause of the problem of sometimes working and
sometimes not working via GPO mapping could be caused by any problem of
resource management by the server? Is there any way to do some tuning to
optimize resource management?

I have only 500 users on the network, so it would take more than 16 GB RAM,
4 GB Swap and 2 processors to meet the demand?

I have no more ideas of what could cause this problem.
