Description Jyri Sillanpaa 2005-09-13 10:03:51 UTC
The documents get corrupted on save and can't be openened after that, the only
solution normally is restore yesterdays backups and lose the days work.
This is not happening all of the time but in random and only from the Linux
clients (RHEL-Desktop-4-U1), the NT 4.0 workstations using the same shares are
not experiencing these corruptions.
Once the file gets corrupted it can't be opened in either type of workstations.
The NT 4.0 fileserver and worstations are updated to SP6.

Yours sincerely

Jyri Sillanpaa, RIU Hotels

Please test the cifs-fs client rather than smbfs.
If you have any problems, please mail the 
linux-cifs-client@samba.org mailing list,
