Description Matthew Sutton 2004-03-07 09:55:26 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
After I mount a cifs share that is on a windows 2000 machine, I begin 
to copy a large amount of files from the mount to the local drive for 
backup purposes.  The cifs share begins to get "cannot stat <mount> 
Input/Output error".  And then the file transfer dies.  If I unmount 
then remount the share, I can then get a directory listing but the 
file transfer still does not work.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount a cifs share
2. begin to copy files

Actual Results:  cannot stat <mount> Input/Output error

Expected Results:  be able to copy files from a cifs mount to local 
drive without errors, and without having to reboot to finish 

Additional info:

This has been happening since the first test 1 kernel came out.

my /var/log/messages is filled with these two lines over and over

kernel:  CIFS VFS: Error 0xfffffffb or (-5 decimal) on 
cifs_get_inode_info in lookup
kernel:  CIFS VFS: Need to reconnect after session died to server

How do things look with the current update kernel ?
There have been a boatload of CIFS fixes since 2.6.3
Comment 2 Matthew Sutton 2004-06-15 08:11:12 EDT
Things are going great now.  I currently am pulling backups from a 
windows 2003 server and cifs is solid.
