I am new to Samba and I have installed version 2.0.7 on RedHat Linux 6.1
(with kernel upgrade to 2.2.14-12).
The system seems to working relatively OK with one exception.
When I do a large copy from Windows98 or Windows2000 I find that the
connection to the share is "disconnected". By large, I am transfer hundreds
of Megabytes to several Gigabytes of files to the Samba server.
I have used several "clients" on Windows2000 to do the transfer, and the
results are the same (xcopy, windows explorer copy, Norton File manager for
NT directory "sync" copy).
I have tried using several levels of logging and reading through them, it
may be possible that running up against a fileopen limit?
One error message that I was able to pull out of the logs was:
Server exit (caught signal).
I compiled with --with-automount --with-smbmount and --with-pam
Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can track down the cause of this
