    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    Still getting the FindClose error with Ubuntu 11.04.

    To refresh on the issue, I'm mounting a rather large Windows 7 file share with CIFS. I have gone through the steps in the beginning of the post.

    Code:
    media@ubuntu-desktop:~$ grep FindClose /var/log/kern.log
    (CLIP)
    May  9 14:17:03 ubuntu-desktop kernel: [  578.128458] CIFS VFS: Send error in FindClose = -9
    media@ubuntu-desktop:~$ cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.38-8-generic (buildd@vernadsky) (gcc version 4.5.2 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.5.2-8ubuntu3) ) #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011
    Any help?

    Re: Howto: Fix Windows share browsing issues

    OK, I got a few more files to show up by removing various brackets and braces such as {}[](). I also replaced all spaces with underscores. I'm now wondering if there are hidden characters in some of the file names which would still be causing issues?

    I've also split up the file share into several directories, this doesn't have any effect. I was hoping listing fewer files would help.

    I can truncate the file names and get a few more to show up. Rather if you prefer, more files are available with smaller file names. I'm counting the characters in the directories having the issue and am finding a character limit of about 690 characters. The second time I ran it is after I increased a file's name length and it dropped a file from the mount point.

    Code:
    media@ubuntu-desktop:~$ ls /the/directory/mounted/to | wc -m
    689
    media@ubuntu-desktop:~$ ls /the/directory/mounted/to | wc -m
    684
    Should I submit a bug report for this, and as a CIFS or kernel? I think I'm at the end of how much I can do, and compiling a debugging kernel isn't something I'm prepared to do.

    Brilliant! It's working 100% for me now after uninstalling Avast. Many, many thanks for this, I've actually been looking at this issue for months.

    Moving onward...

    Try mounting a large file share, browse or list all of the directories with 'ls -laR', and then run the following to see if you are really *not* having any issues.

    Code:
    grep FindClose /var/log/kern.log
    If it comes back without anything you can proudly say you are awesome with much awesomeness and you don't know what our problem is.
    I was glad to see that you got this resolved.

    My original point was that blaming the kernel was inappropriate, since sharing and accessing shares worked perfectly for me with the same kernel.

    I've never accessed a share from the Terminal. Where is it? I tested access to a share with 12,000 files in a couple of dozen folders using Nautilus, and everything worked properly, including running Properties, which required reading all the directories.

    I wasn't blaming the kernel, just the CIFS_VFS kernel mode driver.

    My point was that your original post wasn't very helpful, and didn't contain any of the information you just posted. I'm sorry if I come across as snide. I sometimes have difficulty writing things when I'm frustrated, and my objective was to give tools to try to troubleshoot the issue. Want to learn how to capture network packets from a CIFS directory listing?

    I have a shared folder "common" that I want several users to have full access to.

    They can see the folder and the files, nut not access them at all.
    I don' really like coffee. I guess I'll give my Ubuntu beans to my wife.

    Is it a Windows share? This thread is about Windows shares...

    (If it's a Ubuntu share, did you click "guest access" when you created it?)
