[Samba] File corruption with two Samba servers

2009-12-17 Thread Milos Rancic
I have two samba servers. One is a proxy for another; i.e. windows clients access to the first via the second. When i copy a file from proxy to the destination server via samba, everything is OK. However, when Windows (XP) users copy, let's say a word document, file becomes corrupted (probably,

[Samba] file corruption with write cache

Hello, FYI, i noticed that using write cache size = 131072 on a share, leads to corrupted files from some applications. Only one client is accessing the file. In particular with coreldraw this can be reproduced. Setup: Server: samba 3.0.4-SUSE Client: Windows XP Pro [raid1] comment = 1

Can you tell me exactly how you reproduce this ? Open a file on the write cached share, in this case a coreldraw file (size 24K). Save it with a different name, it only happens if a new file gets created. Sometimes the first save succeds without error. After the first one fails, no later write

Can you reproduce this with a different application than coreldraw ? One that ships with Windows maybe ? So far i know none, but i will test. When you save the new file what happens ? Does the app abort with an error report ? No, the app is perfectly happy. How do you know the file is corrupt ?

You've only seen corruption on files of .exe type, while you have data files regularly being copied back and forth? My first guess would be to check and double check for a virus on any pc that has access to that share. There is an older Dos virus I've seen around that will mess up installers and
