smb copy fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
I'm trying to copy over a big directory (3000+ files 180mb) from a
windows server to linux box using smb built into nautilius. But it
dies without reason
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest in fc2
100% but where is dies seems random.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.open location (cntl-L)
3.type share "smb://server/share/"
5.select folder to copy
6.drag to another nautilus window on local disk
7.wait for copy to finish
coping stops after only copying some of the files (maybe 1000+) but it
is not the same amount each time. Does not appear to be a permission
problem since I can manually copy the files subfolder by subfolder.
Copying to complete flawlessly. If there is a problem it should not
just drop out.
I'm copying to a vfat partition.
Also, I notice that the progress bar finishes before all the files are
Does copying to a non-vfat partition work?
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
