I have a process that moves files from a linux machine to a mounted share on a windows 2008 standard box. For some reason today the entire linux box locked up, and reported the following error:
CIFS VFS: No writable handles for inode

I had to restart the machine to be able to log back in.

1. Is there a way to kill this error without rebooting?
2. What caused this error?
3. What is the fix for it?
