If my mental model of your problem is correct, then your problem can be solved by adding an entry to the Debian box's crontab, which runs a script that attempts to touch a file on the NAS. If it works, return 0. If it fails, the script should remount the CIFS share, and optionally write a warning to syslog, send a text message to an admin, or whatever your site's procedure specifies. The crontab should be fired fairly frequently to minimize downtime, but use discretion of course. To me, '*/5 * * * *' should be fast enough to limit downtime, but not so fast as to effectively DoS yourself. I've only applied minimal testing to this method, yanking the network cable to simulate an outage of the CIFS server. Works okay for me, but more testing would probably be necessary. -- _ Brian Ryans 8B2A 54C4 E275 8CFD 8A7D 5D0B 0AD0 B014 C112 13D0 .
