Just today I have an issue with one of the shares being reshared via samba, that it reports 0 free space so no one can save anything on that share. I want to mitigate this issue for the time being so it would be helpful how to fix that? Any ideas? It reports 726mb of size of that share and 0 bytes free.

If your NFS reshare isn't reporting the correct amount of
space you can always force it by hacking together a "dfree command"
(see the smb.conf option).

That should get you up and running whilst you investigate
why your NFS reshare isn't reporting the correct size.
