Samba share dropping off !!!
We are mapping our windows server (2000) to our AIX samba server share for file distribution. We are using security=server in our smb.conf file. We are running samba 2.2.3a on AIX 5.2.
This setup works great 90 percent of the time and has ran fine for a long time. However, now the windows server is dropping the share, or not autheticating back to samba correctly every 3 days or so.
The error on the windows side is "unknown user name or bad password." Also it says "windows cannot determine user or computer name; return value is 1326"
The error on the samba side is :
[2004/03/01 14:36:54, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c
unable to open passdb database.
When this happens on this particular windows server, we can still get to the samba share from other windows servers or from our local PCs.
*** Also so far to fix the problem we reboot the Windows server. This fixes the problem temporarily.
