I am using samba client on RedHat Linux 7.1 (and 7.3). I am using the
samba version that came with each respective box. I have a problem
that is somewhat reproducible, although I am still not sure the exact
steps. Basically, Linux COMPLETELY hangs, with no responsiveness at
all. No messages in /var/log/messages.
I am connecting to a CIFS share on a Windows server. I have a Linux
client and a Window 2K client. The problem seems to occur when I
modify files from both Windows and Linux clients at the same time.
One way that seems to reproduce it is if I delete files via the
Windows client and then do an 'ls' on the mounted directory on the
Linux client. But this doesn't *always* cause it. Also, it is
possible that you have to be root to cause the hang, but again I
cannot yet confirm that. The problem is, unfortunately, intermittent.
Thanks for any help.
