I appreciate everyone's patience.  I have been posting a few times about 
this but this time I simplified the server to a standalone file server.

Ubuntu 22.04.2,  Version 4.15.13-Ubuntu, ext4 file system

My software requires SMB1.  It reads lock files (*.LCK, *.net) to 
determine the lock status of records and tables in a database. Samba 
freezes and my software times out when querying  the lock files.

The log files at level 5 are quite long and I don't see any obvious 
errors.   Thunderbird keeps crashing when I tray to paste them here.  
Trying everything I can but can't make it change. Help is very much 

testparm -s
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Loaded services file OK.
Weak crypto is allowed
