I have a SMB/CIF connection to NetApp storage. On the storage space is about 250Gb of files.
When I run the following command to remove the files, in the root of mounted directory, rm -R *
This causes the server to reboot. Today using konqueror when I looked at the properties of a folder, it crashed the server and causing it to reboot.
Typing rm -R * in your root directory is guaranteed to hose your server
(and having done that, once, by mistake, thinking I was in another
directory, I make a point of using full paths whenever using a rm -R
Which leads to a few suggestions:
1. try rm -R /<mount point>/*
2. since this looks like a 1-time event (how often do you wipe an entire
server), delete a few directories at a time, until you're done
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
