View Full Version : [ubuntu] samba crashed on file copy

March 2nd, 2011, 12:36 AM
today I was moving 25,000 files from my projects folder from a windows box to the linux box when I noticed it crapped out about 60% of the way done

check the server console saw a crash report all over the screen so I hot the power button and rebooted

server is back up no file loss so no problem

but I thought I would report a problem with SAMBA and copying vast numbers of files is at issue

after the restarting the server, samba still did not come up so I restated it and it is back up fine

curious, another 35,000 file copy did not choke

makes me wonder

previously the machine had not been rebooted for a month
