Description of problem:
Archiving data to CIFS mount unexpectedly resulted in oops and kernel panic on one occurance and hang on second occurance.
Share was mounted using following command and arguments:
/bin/mount -t cifs //backupsrv/someshare$ /mnt/backup -oiocharset=iso8859-13,username=backupuser,password=backuppass
For full oops and hang messages please see provided URL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Kernel has custom built qla2xxx drivers for failover capability.
CIFS in RHEL4 U3 was updated to the 1.34a release. Please try
that kernel to see if the this problem is resolved.
I'll give it(24.EL) a try. Don't expect any results soon as
our problem showed up only after half an year of CIFS use.
So far everything seems OK with 24.EL
I noticed that 24.1.EL has CIFS related patch(#170498), should
i upgrade to 24.1.EL ?
Everything is fine with 24.EL, bug seems to be related with unmountable CIFS server.
