Re: Samba 3.3.4 - Win7 Latency with MS Office files

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Thanks for the ideas !

Does enabling nameservice cacheing mean starting winbindd ? Wondering what the implications of having this running on a network with an actual Win DC running as well are ? Meaning this is a "standalone" instance of a samba server that I am trbl shooting.

I have a development version running the latest, 3.6.7 build and am testing with Win7 clients but seem to still be getting latency after multiple files are opened.

I will try the temp file default location change  though as well.

(has its pros can cons.)

I would also try XP+Office 2010 and WIn 7+ Office 2007 to see if you can
shake out which is the actual problem.

Also, can you configure office to store temp files on the local PC, and
not the same directory as the office file is located.

 Users were previously running WinXP and using MS office 2007.

 Question:  Is an upgrade to the latest stable 3.x  Ver  likely to
 resolve this OR am I also missing some more stringent security
 settings I need to address b/c of Win7 ?

 Any ideas or clues appreciated.
