The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1200
Exporting from Windows in dBASE format
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:18:54 UTC
If you are exporting from any windows program into dBASE format it results in a delayed write error if
the exported file is greater than 15 MB. If the file is bigger, Windows will fail to export the file and
display a "Delayed Write Error". This only happens if the resulting exported file size is supposed to be
over 15 MB. Exporting to a local drive and then copying it to the same Samba share results in a fine
copy on the share.
please set 'oplocks = no' in the service containing the
dbase file (as per the documentation) and report back.
Oplocks does not help the situation. Even if I turn off all file locking it still gives the error message.
Have you tested this against a NT file server ? Just curious.
Yes, If i export out to a Windows Share it is all set. Also when we used to have Jaguar server which
included Samba 2.x exporting is fine. This problem has only cropped up since 3.0 which is included in
Panther. (3.0.2) I have been on the phone with Microsoft trying to find out if it was on there end and
after 4 hours they concluded that it must be a Samba problem. Apple said that they were just going to
file a report to you because they could not figure it out. I was hopping that going straight to the source
would be the best bet. Thanks!
jerry, any new ideas? sorry to nag you but people are starting to get angry with
me because of the workaround. thanks!
please test against 3.0.11. Reopen if necessary. Sorry for
not being more responsive. Lots of bug reoprts.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
