I am having some strange problems with samba on one of my fileservers.
I am using samba 2.2.1a compiled with qouta support and the quota patches.
Kernel is 2.4.9 with quota patches.
Everything seems to work fine exept some very wired things:
If I try to save a document from word 2000 to a samba share the file can't
be read afterwards by word.
The file is on the server I can copy the file from there, but office can't
read it. (the file is damaged)
If I save a file not in w2k office format, and save it as office97 document
everything works fine. (still from the same word 2k) I just say "save as"
and change the document type.
If I disable kernel oplocks it works with w2k format too.
But the really strange thing, I have the same setup on 6 other servers and
there it works perfectly.
But now I am having problems storing outloook profiles on the server.
The only difference I see between the servers is that one has a hardware
raid 5 (this server behaves normally) and the other one has a software raid
Is it possible that samba conflicts somehow with the raid code ?
Has anyone ever hat this problem and is there a solution ?
