Last modified: 2004-04-19 07:26:32 UTC
I 'm runig Samba client 2.2.8 on
Linux 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I have problem with large files >2GB :
Viewed from Windows 2000server - files looks like:
3,307,064 bytes PhotoProfile File 12/11/2003
Viewed from Linux RH - using the Samba client ( as a mount point to the
Win2K.) the same file look like so
--rwxr-xr-x 1 db2inst1 db2iadm1 18446744072999226826 Dec 11 14:25
I this a bug in Samba client ....etc...?
Forget we are using RH 8.0
I'm having the same problem.
I can grab a > 2gb file from a linux box from a windows box.
I can put a > 2gb file from a windows box to a linux box.
I CAN NOT put a > 2gb file from linux to windows.
I CAN NOT grab a > 2gb file from wondows.
samba version: 2.2.8a
Kernel version: 2.4.22 kernel.org
OS Gentoo linux.
Sorry, but the 2.2 is not under development any longer.
If you can reproduce this bug against the latest 3.0 release,
please reopen this bug and change the version in the report.
I upgrade the samba client from 2.2 to 3.0 version and the problem with file large
> 2GB is still there, so the only solution s to stay way from samba and go with
NFS client and Humingbird Maestro
are you referring to smbfs or smbclient ? There are patches
for large file support in smbfs. You might also want to
look at the cifsvfs in the 2.6 kernel.
Note that smbfs is not part of Samba. We only provide
some user space helpers to mount the fs. The internals
of the kernel fs don't belong to us.
and I never saw the new logs either. Do you still have them ?
no response. CLosing
