Hi Samba Developers,

There seems to be a bug in the "kernel oplock" code in samba 2.2.1a (Other
2.2 releases possibly as well, not tested)

Situation as follows:

If you run a DOS app from a command prompt using Windows 9x/ME, you get an
error that states "Access Denied" if the DOS app resides in a directory with
a long file name.

If the directory is renamed to be 8.3 compliant, the problem goes away.

Also the problem does not occur using a W2K workstation (NT not tested by

Switching off "kernel oplocks" makes the problem go away.

The same problem is described by Johan Hedlund in the following mail.


He downgraded the kernel and it made his problem go away (Effectively
disabling Kernel oplocks).

Versions running:
Kernel 2.4.5
Samba 2.2.1a

I created a log file (attached) that shows on line 1152 that Samba gets a
"Resource Temporarily unavailable" from the kernel??

If you reply, please reply to my email address as well, as I am currently
not subscribed to any mailing lists.
