Hi Everyone! Thanks to everyone that gave me advice on my last problem,
which thankfully has be resolved and through good practice shall never
happen again! I have another problem that has me on the ropes, this time to
do with SAMBA.
I have set up SAMBA 2.0.7 using the RED HAT 6.2 Optimizing and Securing
PDF. I also followed the Application Serving text file in the SAMBA
docs. The network which I administrate contains WIN95 (with all patches
and service packs) and WIN98 SE. My problem is that I can only get about 4
to 6 people to log on before Windows displays the message that access to
the domain controller is denied. On issusing of the SMBSTATUS command on
the server, it displays the following message: Can't Create Or Use IPC
Area. Error Was File Exists. ERROR: Failed to Initialise Share
Modes. Cant Initialise Shared Memory - Exiting. Checking the logs,
log.smb states: locking/locking/shmem_sysv.c Cant Create or Use IPC
Area. Error was file exists. In the smb.conf, the [global] section
states: share modes = no ; while the application sections have: locking = no.
Has anybody come across this before? I would love to hear from any
suggestions that might solve this!
