I have an Apple OS X server that has been driving me crazy.  The office uses it for public files but it quits responding to SMB requests after a couple of hours.  When rebooted it's fine for a while.

Currently running 10.6.5

Where do I need to start to troubleshoot this?

There may be a conflict with another machine taking over the master browser role for the workgroup. Try changing the Mac server's workgroup in the Windows share settings and see if it stays alive.

Problem continued through a Lion upgrade.  I just upgraded to ML and it seems to be working so far.  Although I never found a solution it seemed to be something with the TCP ports no longer connecting.  I don't know why they would get jammed up but it always took a reboot to fix it.
