Description Thomas Stinner 2004-06-26 03:29:35 UTC
As we have always done using samba 2.2.x, we are mounting a share from a windows
2000 box into the linux system and then export it using samba.

This had worked without a problem until we use SuSE 9.1 Pro and therefore Samba

It initially works, but is very unstable. After a few hours the mounted
directory is no longer accesible (doing an ls on the directory gives an
I/O-Error, doing umount gives a device is busy, doing an fuser -m on the
directory gives an I/O Error too. 

All i can do then is reboot the machine....

this is not a samba issue, smbfs is known to be very broken and not part of
samba. btw - better use CIFS, it's more stable in the meantime and actively
developed, so if you have problems with cifs, there is a chance that bugs are
being fixed ;-)

We have now switched to cifs and did not have any problems since.

Thanks for the fast reply!
