That had no effect. (The server is running 3.0.20 btw). Eventually we
pulled the machine out of the domain, renamed the NetBIOS and inserted
it back into the domain with the new name, which is a bit severe but
it appears to have corrected the symptoms, even if I don't understand
the underlying cause.
But the question remains... can one delete the gencache.tdb file when
Samba is halted with no ill effects? I would imagine so, but it would
be nice to have the confirmation from a voice of authority.
