SAMBA: mount hangs
Posted on 2004-09-13
Samba 2.2.7a on RH 9.0
Installed, working partially
Issuing command mount -t smbfs -o username=foo,password=bar //$OXWAN/storage /mnt/server2
This sometimes works perfectly, sometimes hangs. When it hangs, pressing ctrl-c will break out (unfortunately, this breaks any script that might be issuing the mount) and the mount has taken place. Yes, the share is mounted.
I just ran it a number of times, and it seems to hang once every three or four tries. The server is not particularly busy, and is on the LAN - even on the same switch.
How do I eliminate this occasional hang?
