I recently forced to upgrade my systems from RHEL3 to RHEL4, due to new software requirements, and now I'm having some weird problems with Samba:
1) When I mount Windows shares using smbmount, I can write to a share normally, but if this share contains many files (I still don't know exactly how many files) and I try to list them (using ls or find, for example) the system hangs completely, with no errors displayed or written to logs.
2) Searching on Internet, I read that SMBFS on RHEL4 is a little buggish, and the right way to mount Windows shares is using CIFS. I tried to mount the same shares using mount.cifs and was mounted ok, but when I try to write something, I receive "Input/Output error". When I try to list the files, I receive "CIFS VFS: No task to wake, unknown frame rcvd!".
I choose to use RHEL at my company expecting stability and working packages, but now it seems I was wrong...
Thanks in advance!
