I have a 12.04LTS server setup with samba so that I can access my share from windows machine. my problem is that I can sometimes connect to the share and after a short while the share is not accessible, I then try to connect again from a different windows machine, and I get the same problem. After a short while I am again able to access the share and it keep on giving me the same cycle. My samba configuration file is as follows:
[global] netbios name = PSSERVER server string = workgroup = PARADISE security = user encrypt passwords = yes smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd interfaces = 192.168.0.1/8 [print$] path = /var/lib/samba/printers browseable = yes guest ok = yes read only = yes write list = root create mask = 0664 directory mask = 0775 [printers] path = /tmp printable = yes guest ok = no browseable = no [Pachsoft] comment = Pachsoft Pos System path = /Pachsoft writeable = yes create mode = 0600 directory mode = 0700
I am able to ping the server on ip
192.168.0.100 as well as access it using webmin or putty or ssh secure shell which never drops me from the server so I know it is not a network issue but the samba share always drops intermittent. Could there be a problem with samba on ubuntu 12.04 lts? I have set it up as a headless.

there are only three folders in the samba cores directory ,nmbd nothing in,smbd with a file called core which shows ELF i don't know how to copy the contents, winbindd with nothin in
problem has been solved after i install virtual box which upgraded my server
