View Full Version : [ubuntu] samba shares crash while streaming

Here's the setup:
Ubuntu Server w/ samba share 'videos'
HTPC Ubuntu 9.10, XBMC
Windows 7 Pro (regular desktop)

I can watch movies on my HTPC (xbmc) all day with no issues whatsoever. When I try to watch a movie with xbmc or vlc on my windows desktop, the shares on the server go offline periodically, typically 20-30 minutes into the movie. Shares come back up in about 2-3 minutes, and everything is fine again for another 30 minutes. This also seems to be the case when transferring large files to or from the server shares on my windows 7 machine.

Any idea why this happens on my windows 7 machine and not on my ubuntu HTPC? What log files should I be looking at to find out what is wrong?

Thanks!
Jason

Edit: SSH and other services continue to work after crashes, and if I sudo /etc/init.d/samba resart the shares come right back up, so it would appear that the issue is isolated to samba.

You might consult the logs in /var/log/samba/log.<IP address/hostname>

It looks like this may point to a problem, but I don't know what any of it means. looks like wide links and unix extensions?
Thanks for your help!
