Hi All,

I tried different options with new samba 4.12.1 and 4.12.2 regarding 
sharing to win clients

I have many shares, but problems occur more frequently (share gets 
unreadable, until smb restart)

Using Fedora 32

So I see different behavior when:

1.) share is on software raid mdraid

2.) share destination is on the soft link  (ln -s /data/1-Folder )

3.) I used "mount --bind" also to mount different ssd  partition within 
folder structure

ie  Samba share looks to folder   /1-Folder/  and within /1-Folder/Data 
(folder mounted from ssd partition)

some logs
