Hi all
I have a CentOS 4.4
Kernel 2.6.9-11.EL
Samba (smbd -V)
I've been using this server as a small file server
recently i needed to do a backup (ntbackup to file)
and the backup fails randomly, the largest backup file i managed was about 3GBytes 
I tried copying large files and randomly the connection is lost
I tried with a ping at the same time and the replies don't get interrupted so it seems to me it is a
samba issue
I have the latest versions (except the kernel) or so the updater tells me
thanks all
Manuel Teixeira
