Exclamation Samba smbd constantly spitting error messages to syslog


Has anyone else seen this before? I googled and forum searched it awhile back and came up with nothing. This shows up in my syslog (/var/log/syslog) like once every 10 minutes:

Code:

Sorry, but I never did figure out what it was.

I have always, and I think still do get it though (I'll have to check if a recent upgrade didn't eliminate it). So, I don't think it causes connection problems. You'll have to look elsewhere for what is causing the problem, or post something in this forum. :-)

Thanks for the update. You are right, it doesn't seem to cause any connection problems but those message can sure send you down the wrong path when trying to debug. Thanks again
