We have a mac XServe server running OSX 10.4.7. It's primary use is as
a file server. Every so often (randomly), the windows XP Pro computers
on the network will stop connecting to the server. I will go to the
logs and look and I always notice in the "Windows Name Service Log"
(/var/log/samba/log.nmbd) a message that says [example below]:
Got SIGTERM: going down...
If I stop the Windows service and then start it again, the file server
works again with no problems (at least temporarily).
I am pretty sure this is the point when SAMBA has a problem, but Is
there more info that I can provide to help with troubleshooting this?
