Hello,
English is not your native language, right? Or you wrote in a hurry maybe?
Sorry but your post is not readable to me. Please post what you are doing precisely, step by step and don't forget any step and then post the exact error message you receive, as written on the screen.

I am Chinese , English is not my native language

error messages like below
=========================

SMB connection re-established (-5)
SMB connection re-established (-5)

I think no any step that I can post as the messages will pop from time to time , after I login to the system , the messages will pop every a few minutes

You are getting those messages in console terminal, right?
So tell me, do you want to fix the problem that makes those messages occur or do you just want those messages not to pupop in the terminal?
For the later, you just have to edit /etc/syslog.conf and comment the lines ending with /dev/console (add a # in front of the line)
For the former, it is a little harder.

Not only console , I use telnet to access the server , my telnet session also pop these messages ,

Yes , I just want not to pop to my telnet session .

I read the /etc/syslog.conf , but can't find this login id , but only this login id will pop such messages .

Thx.

Do you actually use syslog or any other logger?
What is your username?
If you do actually use syslog, please post your /etc/syslog.conf

Can you try to kill syslogd just to confirm the problem comes from syslog?
