Description Klaus Braun 2013-08-16 14:35:22 UTC
On my Windows 7 computer I am using the ESRI Software ArcGIS 10.1 which is the world leading Geographical Information System (GIS). Under specific circumstances this software is unable to write files to a samba share when samba uses SMB 2. When samba uses SMB 1 (the default) the problem doesn't occur.

On the internet I found a discussion concerning the issue, that specific Microsoft updates may result in data corruption with file geodatabases or shapefiles created on a network share on a Windows file server:


It is said that the problem comes from the RDBSS.SYS component on the Windows 7 computer.

Three days ago Microsoft published a hotfix to solve the problem:


I installed this hotfix, but without success: I still get the same error when I
try to create files in a file geodatabases on a samba share when samba uses SMB 2. 

I'm not really sure what is causing the problem: Samba, ArcGIS or Microsoft.

Maybe the issue is correlated to the issue mentioned above and samba is affected by this or not or maybe there is another bug in samba or not.

In any case for me it would be helpful to know if samba could be the problem or if I should concentrate on ArcGIS or Microsoft to find a solution.
