I am having a very consistent, extremely reproduceable (to the point that
I canot figure how to get around it) occurance of the request_oplock_break
I started to see this in 1.9.18p10, and upgraded to 2.0.0. The problem
still persists. I have searched thru the samba listproc archives, but
have not found anything that seems applicable.
My samba server is running on Solaris 2.5.1
My client is NT4 sp3
I have a share (it happens to be the root share of the smb server).
I mount the network drive, and click on it, and NT4 will hang for quite
a while. Seems like forever, but it is probably only 1 or 2 minutes.
When it comes back, the directory listing is only partially listed.
a refresh will come back w/ a similiar (i.e. partial) listing another
couple of minutes later. I think I have seen different sets of partial
listings, if it matters.
After two or three of these attempts I will start to see the following
message in my client smb log file:
[1999/01/16 12:19:29, 0] smbd/oplock.c:(943)
request_oplock_break: no response received to oplock break
request to pid 4192 on port 33425 for dev = 28c0004, inode = 28752
pid 4192 is:
ps -ef | grep 4192
greg 4192 131 0 11:43:07 ? 0:00 smbd
("greg" is the network user trying to access the share).
I have tried a 2nd PC, and the problem also occurs there, ruling out
the network card (whish due to other testing, was not high on the list
This is entirely, 100% reproduceable. I have tried rebooting NT, solaris,
to no avail. I am at my wits end. I looked at the code, but it is not
clear to me how to continue diagnosing / debugging this.
I am looking for suggestions as to how best to proceed. (solutions also
welcome, though from my listproc searchs, I was unable to locate any :(
as an aside, I put the following in my [global] sections of the smb.conf
and I am not seeing the verbosity I would expect.
debug level = 10
I see some debug levels, but for example, oplock.c should be logging
alot more when it is at debug level 10, and I am not seeing this.
If my smb.conf is relavant to this discussion, or more of my logfile,
I will be happy to post, but wanted to conserve teh bandwidth on this
thanks, and rgds,
