broken sockets when doing large file io with samba mounts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
When opening a samba mounted directory under windows running under vmware, the
windows directory window searchs all the images in that directory and generates
a little icon of the image in the file. The icon update process is very slow.
Looking at the samba log file, I see a lot of socket errors being reported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fire up the windows system
2.open the samba mounted directory which contains large jpg files
3.watch it take for ever to populate the icons
Very slow icon population, lots of socket errors in samba log file.
Fast icon populat, no socket errors in samaba log file.

samba log file
What Windows version?
What Samba version?
Is the samba server on the same host as the windows vmware image?
If not how are the hosts interconnected? Is the eth card of the windows vmware
image bridged? NATed? Routed?
Are they both emulated or not?
