So i have a working Samba server here. The problem is that after a few days, it starts giving me access denied errors. I think it has to do with me only being asked, when i first reboot the server, to supply a username and password. For some reason, i cannot restart the service and get it to ask me again. i have to reboot the whole server in order to get a username password prompt.
Is there some samba setting that will make me enter a username and password each time? is there anything i can do about the fact that the record of my authentication goes "Stale" as it were and while i can view all the files, i cannot write to them or delete or change them. Windows 2k just says "access denied"
sure i can reboot the server and re get the prompt but thats kind of insane.
any help appreicated
