I'm running Samba v3.0.14a on FreeBSD 5.4 and having a problem trying to backup
a CDROM in a DVD drive using smbtar.
Network layout is simple...
192.168.3.1 FBSD w/samba v3.0.14a
192.168.3.5 Windows XP Professional
I have two shares on the WINXP machine:
C:\temp shared as temp
D: shared as CDROM
smbtar -s PC1 -x "CDROM" -t /tmp/test
PC1 is the WINXP machine. The smbtar command hangs when attempting to copy files from
the DVD device, but works just fine if I use "temp" and copy files from the temp folder.
If I mount the DVD device onto the FBSD machine using mount_smbfs, I can access the
CDROM just fine and copy the files from the device. However, I'm curious if this is
expected behaviour with smbtar(), if it's a bug with smbtar(), or if I'm just doing
Any info appreciated.
