I had reported a problem when using smbclient to create a backup using
tar. I run this command from the Bourne shell:
$ smbclient \\wizard\backup XXX -U backup -E -d5 -Tc - > wizard.tar 2> wizard.log
When run from amanda, I would get the error message:
[smbclient got signal 13]
I am running Samba 2.0.0 on Solaris 2.5, but I also saw the problem on
I only saw the problem on one machine. I was able to generate a
1500Mb tar file from another PC with no problems.
It appears that the problem is size related. Picking a subdirectory
with only 50Mb usually works ok. Picking a subdirectory with 100Mb
fails most of the time.
The problem was the driver for the Realtek network card in the PC. I
upgraded the driver, and the problem went away.
