[Samba] Resource deadlock avoided

I also have the same problem on files that, according to smbstatus, have:

DenyMode: 	DENY_NONE 
Oplocks:	NONE

Strangely enough this is only happening for one Mac user. And even then this only happens for two of the 20+ files he's got open, and the only apparent difference between them is in the Access column: the offending files have Access: 0x3.

If I use 'smbstatus -L', it lists files open on this user's computer, yet reports *no* locks when I use 'smbstatus -u <username> -L'. An smbstatus bug, perhaps?

Also, the '[Errno 35] Resource Deadlock Avoided' messages only started showing up after I upgraded the fileserver to:

OS: Fedora Core 3
Kernel: 2.6.9-1.667
Samba: 3.0.11-1

What could be causing this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi guys,

How are you keeping ?

I use 'smbmount' and a custom script to mount remote shares from Windows desktops and back them up to a Linux server.
Everything works great except that I get "Resource deadlock avoided" when trying to copy 'Outlook.pst'.
This of course is due to users' having their Outlook open when my backup script runs.

Is anyone aware of a way to avoid the 'Resource deadlock avoided" error and still copy 'Outlook.pst' file ?
I've had a look around but can't find too much info on this.

Thanks in advance.

Kindest regards
David Wilson
