I have an MFC program that access a file in the samba (3.0.10) share
with the following code.
CString strSearchPath = _T("\\\\TestServer\\TestShare\\tempfile.txt");
if( !fValueFile.Open(strSearchPath,CFile::modeReadWrite ) )
//CloseHandle( (HANDLE)fValueFile.m_hFile );
If i run this code on a Windows 2003 server, it leaves one HANDLE
open. but if i try this operation from a windows XP ( with SP2)
machine, every thing is fine.
Also this leak seems to happen only for a samba share. If the
"strSearchPath" is replaced with a Windows share, there is no leak.
Number of files opened by our application is quite large and so may
handles ( in 1000s ) are held up by the application. With the help of
procexp utility i found that the handle used was a file handle
(\\TestServer\\TestShare\ wrt to the sample code above. file name was
Did any one face a similar problem?
Any idea whether this problem is Samba related (since this happens
only for samba shares) ?
Any help/pionter in this regard will be of great help.
With best regards,
