Re: Samba hanging problem

Las time I had problems with Red Hat Samba, I downloaded the latest samba version from SAMBA.org (rpms for red hat available) and the problems went away.

Re: Samba hanging problem

is that problem started recently?Any recent changes on like kernel upgrade?

uname -a
cat /etc/redhat-release.

Also it is better to keep a new version..Still dont leave any other possibilities...

Are the file systems data belongs to internal disks or SAN?

Re: Samba hanging problem

Hello Awadhesh,

you should get a new version of samba. This bug should be fixed in a newer version of samba.

Re: Samba hanging problem

Hello,

you can check if RedHat has a newer Version für RHEL3. I would prefer these Packages from SerNet.

ftp://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/rhel3-i386

But remember: RedHat doesn't support those packages. Use them on you own risk. The packaged are stable, but not supported by RedHat.

I use often Packages from SerNet under SUSE or RHEL and had no problems till today.

Re: Samba hanging problem

Just noticed your kernel is 2.4.21-47.ELsmp .

We had an ftp problem with this kernel and often the file transfer hangs in between or just after starting. We had to switch to kernel 2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp and everything is OK now. To me it looks like you have a similar issue.


if you have a chance do some testing with this 21-32 kernel.We had a kernel panic issue with 21-27 and when upgraded to 21-47 the ftp problem appeared.We are now OK with 21-30

Linux hostname 2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue May 17 17:52:23 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
