On 3 occasions in the last 2 week my samba server has hung up. It has
occurred each time when I am trying to do a full backup copy of the
It appears to be happening at the same place, I'm guessing based on the
number of files which are being transfered. When I look at the rsync

When I try to shutdown smb, I can't.
#service smb stop
Shutting down smb [Failed]
Shutting down nmb [Failed]
When I look at
#ps -aux|grep smbd
I get a long list of pid's. Whenever I try to kill one of these pid's with
or kill -9 xxxxx
or kill -15 xxxxx
nothing happens. I then have to reboot. I have been running this
system for 2 years and it just started this. Any ideas?
