Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187523
kernel panic when using smbfs and timeout/lost connection occurs
Last modified: 2008-01-15 06:35:46 EST
Kernel panic when accessing SMBFS (windows server) mounted on linux box
RHEL4 all patches applied
Frequently on large windows filesystem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount filesystem
2. Perform large action like du -s on filesystem
Seems to be related to timeouts or lost connections.
Created attachment 127134 [details]
messages file showing errors and panic
I have now duplicated the problem on another RH EL 4 box, so the problem is not
specific to one machine.
A couple of different smbfs memory corruption patches are being committed for
4.6. It's possible that this problem is also fixed there. If you're able to
reproduce this someplace non-critical, then testing the kernels on my people
page would be helpful:
No response in several months. Closing bug with resolution of INSUFFICIENT_DATA,
please reopen if you're still having this issue (though the best solution is
probably to go ahead and move to CIFS).
