Error reading file occasionally on Samba server
I have had a lot of users complaining about intermittent file reading errors while trying to use files on a new samba 3.0.22 server. The clients are Windows 2000 and XP clients using the samba drive as a mapped network share.
We have had no luck in trying to resolve this yet. The logs on the samba don't give anything useful. At the times this occurs there is a new connection request made from that client. Does this mean that the connection is dropped or timed out or something and had to be re-established?
This has occurred in the logs within a minute of the reported time that there was an error trying to access the file. It is not a permissions problem because the users can access the files normally most of the time.
