Hello. after getting suse 9.0 loaded on a new machine here an configuring samba 2.28 that came on the cd's I'm having a locking problem with some access database files. I had this same problem when i first went to linux 2 years go an started storing some access database files on the server. It seems only one person can have the file open at a time. we use it for keeping up with our traffice log here of incoming an outgoing shippments. it was working fine on the old server but now that it crashed on me I had to setup a temp machine til i get some new parts in for the old one.

i will post my samba conf file in this email for someone to look at an point me in the direction i'm going wrong. thanks for the info / help.
