Re: [Samba] Samba freezes

on debian there is a script /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/samba

which can reload samba to handle netbios settings provided by dhcp server (wins server, netbios scope)

but it should not reload smbd if no settings have changed

I have Samba 4.5.8-Debian running on Debian Stretch.
I use Samba to load games over my local network from my Debian

 From time to time, the game freezes, then after 5 minutes it comes
back (sometimes it doesn't, depends on the game).

And here is the syslog at the same time:

 From what I see, there is the usual stuff on top of the logs,
then it start echoing someting, then reloads and then it works

Any idea what might be causing that?

It looks like your Samba machine is using DHCP and when it changes
systemd reloads Samba, this will break any connections.

Try giving your machine a fixed IP instead.

G'Day Rowland,

I think you are on to the right thing about the echo and DHCP, except
they are in other order.
Hi Andrew,

The PC asks for an IP
The PC gets the IP
Systemd restarts Samba

I thought it was fairly obvious what the problem was, but you seem to
see it differently, what I cannot understand, why is systemd restarting
Samba ?
