Hello guys. I have been searching for quite a while in google but I still havent been able to solve the problem with samba client.

Basically Im running 1 server and 1 workstation:

@server:~% uname -a                                                                                                     22855

@server:~% smbd --version                                                                                               22856
Version 3.0.28
@workstation:~% uname -a                                                                                                22996

I experience a long delay before the workstation is ready to power off or reboot. If I dont mount the samba shares or umount them before I turn the workstation off, the shutdown progress will be fine. The machine will be shutdown or rebooted instantly.

Any pointer? Let me know if you need any extra info :)
