[OpenIndiana-discuss] smb keeps failing?

Sigh. I sit down this morning, coffee in hand. My win7 box rebooted due to
updates installed in the early hours. I login and ... same message about
drives not being reconnected. I look in /var/svc/log - no file has been
touched since Oct 9. Then I look at /var/adm/messages. No message
involving smb since Oct 9, and that was unrelated I think (I had tried
connecting to the share from my wife's computer with wrong password.) Note
also that if I double-click on the share icon in windows, it hangs for a bit
and then times out, telling me the network name cannot be found. I then did
'svcadm restart smb/server' and tried opening the share again and it works.
And now there are new lines in /var/svc/log/network-smb-server:default.log
smbd: service shutting down
smbd: service terminated
[ Oct 13 08:49:33 Executing start method ("/usr/lib/smbsrv/smbd start"). ]
smbd: NetBIOS services started
smbd: service initialized
[ Oct 13 08:49:33 Method "start" exited with status 0. ]
I also did run 'svcs -xv' and there were no errors. It looks like OI's smb
service just decided to say screw it and stop advertising the name :(

Anything in the logs?
dmesg or look in /var/adm/messages
