Dear Experts,
We have a shared database file that is located under Samba Redhat.  That program is called Quickbooks.  There are 10 users connected to the shared file, everything looks OK, but suddenly for no reason, user get kicked out from Quickbooks program, I have a feeling that might be caused by samba program, because after they get aborted, I try to access samba shared folder, the computer get stucked, that is mean something wrong with Samba configuration, there is no Firewall at all.
Here is the only changed I made under samba configuration file
     
 [qbdata]
       comment = quickbooks file
       path = /opt/qb/util/qbdata
       valid users = quickbooks quickbooks1
       public = yes
       writable = yes
       printable = no
       create mask =0775
       write list = @qb


do I need to add extra configuration, the file extensions are:
QBW, mdb

your help appreciated.

thanks

Hi,

Samba stores all its log files in the /var/log/samba directory.

Plz tail the logs .....and check it

tail -f /var/log/samba

Hi,

As I know, there are a lot of issues with old `3.0.x` branch and Vista /Seven. It's  old version that isn't

supported currently.

Probably its better to update it at first...
