We have a few people who use WC's on network shares (shares are exported
from a Windows Server 2003 machine). This seems to work but is slow. What
clients are mounting the SMB shares? Windows? or UNIX/Linux? The reason I
ask is that this seems to work with Server 2003 but sometimes not with
Samba. I think there's some locking problems with some versions of Samba.
Why not just have the WC's on local drives? I've advised our users to put
the WC's on their PC's local drives for speed (and so they have access to
their work even when the network isn't available).
