Description Christian Perrier (dead mail address) 2005-05-16 07:52:19 UTC
Please see the Debian BTS for all details regarding this bug.  
In short, from the bug submitter:  
Change directory (cd) command is broken in smbclient 3.0.14a-1,  
generates error ERRDOS.  Not broken in previous version (3.0.10-1).  
Jerry suggested this to be https://bugzilla.samba.org/bug/2530 fixed in  
3.0.13, however Debian reporters confirm this happens also with 3.0.14a.  
We requested the bug submitter to run smbclient -d10 and I will attach the 
relevant output file. 
The target operating system is Windows 95. The bug submitter cannot mention 
whether this is OSR2 or not.

Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-05-30 19:53:26 UTC
please retest the lates SAMBA_3_0 svn tree (or wait until the 
next prerelease).  If the bug is not fixed, I will need
a raw network trace.   

'tcpdump -w /tmp/dump.pcap -s 0 -i eth0 port 139 or port 445'

Comment 3 Christian Perrier (dead mail address) 2005-06-02 06:29:26 UTC
The two users who can reproduce the problem report they still reproduce it 
with a special Debian package built from a SVN checkout of SAMBA_3_0 as of 
I will ask both of them for the requested raw network trace.

Requested tcpdump

I'm one of the debian users seeing the problem, I figured communication would
be easier if I posted directly here.

I've attached a tcpdump, made while running:

$ smbclient //newton/koda
smb: \> cd KODA-SYS
cd \KODA-SYS\: ERRDOS - ERRbadfunc (Invalid function.)
smb: \> exit

The packages Christian Perrier made from a SVN checkout were used.

smbclient -d10 during error 

This has just happened to me, too.  I've upgraded my system from 3.0.2a to 3.0.20, and smbclient can't change directories when connecting to Windows 98 (2nd edition) systems.  It works when connecting to Windows 2000 systems.

I've attached a -d10 output trace.
Comment 7 Glenn Burkhardt 2005-11-17 16:44:24 UTC
I've tested versions 3.0.20b, 3.0.12, 3.0.13.  They don't work; smbclient errors out when trying to change directories when connected to Windows 98 systems.

Version 3.0.11 works; I'll use that one for a while.

Comment 9 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-11-17 20:17:59 UTC
Fixed.  Sorry.  My fault. Patch attached to bug report.
Comment 10 Glenn Burkhardt 2005-11-18 17:55:09 UTC
I've verified that the patch works for me with 3.0.20b.
I'm very impressed with the response - thanks!
