Description Ashley Tozer 2005-06-05 17:20:53 UTC

I am using a BART bootable CD to access the Samba server to map a drive and run
Norton ghost.

This works okay when I make an image of the full hard disc on the client; the
image file is written successfully to the Samba drive.
However when I try to create an image of just a partition on the hard disc, I
get errors from Ghost. First it says that there might not be enough space and
spanning will be required. It fails by saying that it can't write to the file,
but it does create a file of zero size. Eventually it closes with this error:

Cannot create image file
DOS error: access denied (0x0005) (662)

log.smbd has the following error suggesting I should report the problem:

Jeremy, I see the error message still in the 3.0.20a 
source code.    Do you want to follow up on this?
Comment 2 Jeremy Allison 2005-09-29 09:38:25 UTC
Can you send in an ethereal sniffer trace of this please ? It may be a simple
fix (just removing a check) but I need to see the actual request on the wire.

closing.  No response.
