Please please can someone shed some light on this one.
I have mounted some windows 2003 shares onto the my linux box, Supermicro
dual xeon running fedora core 2 samba 3.0.6 using smbmount and quite often
the shares will die or just hang when there is a lot of activity on them.
Does anyone have any idea how to stop this happening?
The errors that I get in smbmount.log is the following...
tdb_lock failed on list 112 ltype=1 (bad file descriptor)
Looking on google only a few people have got this but no conclusive
I wondered if it meant that the file was in use exclusively from the windows
machine !!!
