Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
Using standard Samba RPMs from Red Hat Enterprise 3 AS. Windows Vista beta
testers cannot connect to our campus-wide Samba-based file servers.
Steps to Reproduce:

The Samba crew released a patch to 3.0.21 and current CVS/SVN. Is there any way
such a patch could be rolled into Red Hat's RPM of Samba?
Supposed to be samba-3.0.9-1.3E.7. Sorry!
