Samba-Bug? (file exists)
since the last update from potato to woody
a little problem with our samba-server accured:
When one tries to copy a file from WinNT to the
samba-server, the server claims that the file
already exists, even if it had not been existing.
When you tell the dialog to over-write the old file,
samba writes a new file with 0kB length.
Here is our data:
smbd version 2.2.3a-6 for Debian
Kernel: Linux version 2.4.18
(We are using a Software-Raid)
And the config-file had been always working perfectly well.
Therefore I guess that this could be a bug in the
current smbd for debian. (I read about that this problem
might have something todo with a new preempt-mode?!)
The question is: what should one do about it?
- Change to the old version of samba?
- Using an older Kernel?
Did anybody experience the same problem with the current version?
Thanks in advance for any hints and comments,
