I'm having some problems with W2K picking up incomplete files from an AIX SAMBA share. I have added the following options to my smb.conf file (mostly thanks to people on this list), but am still getting the issue.
comment = Share of /usr/data/ipay
path = /usr/data/ipay
valid users = ipay_svr ipay
write list = ipay_svr ipay
locking = yes
strict locking = yes
oplocks = no
The application guys from the W2K side, are suggesting I add the following 2 options to my smb.conf, but I'm not sure they'll help the issue.
strict sync = yes
sync always = yes
From what I can make out these are to do with flushing writes straight down to disk, and not hanging about in cache.
All help greatly appreciated.
