Samba Seeming to Forget!
Hi all

I have a small issue of a network I have set up with Red Hat 9 on a server with a Samba share to the work directory for the employees in the office (5*XP Prof workstations).

This works fine - sharing the printer and the directory - then after say 30-40 mins - the share seems to be forgotten, and when you try to connect to the shared directory (usually mapped on the XP machine) it says it cannot access the shared resource, and the same with the printer.

This is however resolved on reset of the server.

What could be going wrong here?

does your server go into power save mode???

I have tried to find this and turn it off at BIOS. In Linux where do I check this, or even is there a script I can use to turn it off?

If you have disable PowerSave at the BIOS level, that should be fine.
