Description Matt Selsky 2001-03-28 01:26:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:

Shares mounted off my NT box are dropped after a period of unactivity.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a NT share via smbmount
2. Wait a while
3. Try to use the share.
	

Actual Results:  From dmesg:

smb_retry: sucessful, new pid=1069, generation=2
smb_trans2_request: result=-32, setting invalid

Expected Results:  You should be able to use the share.

According to:

000900/smb00092312_20182.html

This is a problem with the smbfs kernel code in kernels before 2.2.18  The 
ChangeLog in 2.2.18 makes references to bugfixes in smbfs.  A new RedHat 
2.2.18 kernel should solve this problem.
Comment 1 Matt Selsky 2001-05-13 16:21:51 EDT
I upgraded to the new 2.2.19 kernel rpm and the remounting problem seems to have
gone away.  However, I'm still getting the similar messages in demsg:

smb_trans2_request: result=-32, setting invalid
smb_retry: sucessful, new pid=804, generation=42
smb_trans2_request: result=-32, setting invalid
smb_retry: sucessful, new pid=804, generation=43
smb_trans2_request: result=-32, setting invalid
smb_retry: sucessful, new pid=804, generation=44
Comment 2 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:38:56 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
