SMBFS Reconnection

Howdy All,

What I'm using:
     -Mounting an NT share located on Win2kSP1
     -Redhat 7.1
     -Samba (latest RPM's found for fixing Win2kSP2 problems)
     -Kernel 2.4.6.  I haven't tried any 2.4.7pre releases yet.
     -Shared files are accessed through Apache/Coldfusion

The reconnection problem might be that Apache is using the share and not
being able to "trigger" the reconnect.

The only error message I can find in my logs besides HTTPD Access Logs
is in /etc/var/messages (syslog).  It shows:
kernel: smb_get_length: recv error = 104
kernel: smb_trans2_request: result=-104, setting invalid
kernel: smb_retry: successful, new pid=143, generation=6

So it has recreated the connection 6 times.  It is always the "104"

This happens when I access the mounted directory for Apache to use.  I'm
also actively developing on this pages.  These are coldfusion pages as

Apache just seems to have fits about this.  Possibly never having to

Long term results end up with input/output error on mount.  Also, while
it tries to reconnect to the server, the system seems to "hang".
Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful,
-- TJ
