google more! :) i found this, which seems pretty newbie friendly and
it might also be a good idea to subscribe to the samba list since
you seem to be using samba in a production environment - and ask the
question there too. no doubt they'll have very good understanding of
the issues involved. i get the impression from skimming that the option
you mention will work but that there are performance issues.
as an aside, how do admins in production linux environments keep up with
the systems they manage. for instance, if you have servers running the
foo, bar, and floyd packages, do you subscribe to their mailing lists?
do you look for sevices like kernel traffic? do you depend on your
linux distro vendor - can they package info like that for your setup
(i.e. can they just send signal, or is their noise level similar to a
normal mailing list?)
