The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3934
cifs mounts return a zero byte file
Last modified: 2009-05-13 15:58:22 UTC
This is a fresh installation of Fedora Core 5. I have 3 XP
machines that I mount by CIFS in my fstab. CIFS mounts the shares with
no problem. I can view and read files on the shares. The problem I have
is when I try to copy a file from any of the XP machines back to the
Linux box. The file will contain zero bytes. If I ftp into the box and
navigate to the mounts & try to ftp a file, the error is "426 Failure
writing network stream." This happens with any ftp client that I have
tried. There are no firewalls on Linux box or the XP machines. I have
uninstalled SAMBA & then reinstalled SAMBA but that did not help. Here
is a copy of the syntax that I'm using in my fstab.
//hal9000/movies /mnt/Movies cifs
password=nfsnobody,username=nfsnobody 0 0
On the XP machine HAL9000, there is a local user names nfsnobody with a
password nfsnobody. Nfsnobody has full control on the share movies. I
also went to the directory security and add nfsnobody with full control.
Nobody seems to have an answer for this one as I'm clueless as well.
How big is the file that contains zero bytes when it is copied back from XP
mounted shares on FC5 linux box on that FC5 linux box?
Does a large file and a small file, both have same problem?
Are sizes of the source and destination files same but a command like
md5sum gives different output?
Regarding downloading the file from FC5 linux box to a an ftp client box
using ftp, there is similar bug 3833 being worked on.
Is this still an issue?
No response for a while - no additional reports of this, probably long fixed
