"Read blocked by Samba 2.0.7"
This began to happen when Samba 1.9.16 on HP-UX 9.07
was up-dated to Samba 2.0.7. Before the version up,
a file storing common data for several Windows95 clients
could be read at any occasion from any of the
Window95 clients. Now, the file read action seems
blocked (at somewhere I do not know) if there
is only one client application on a client.
Strange is that the file can be read successfully
if there are two or more clients which are reading
the file once in every few seconds. So, there is
no basic problem about the new version as long as
the browsing and accessing configuration is
Here is one attempt to investigate into the queer
behavior: I used only one client and let its read
action kept blocked, and then I typed the contents
of the file in DOS prompt on the very same client.
This released the read block and the application's
read action returned successfully.
I am guessing some buffer might be too large for
the file of the size of less than 1 kbytes.
Would someone advise me to solve this problem?
