I am using Rockstor 3.9.2-57 on a virtual machine. I was able to copy a big amount of data without any problems when I first defined my samba shares. Since then (a couple of months) I only had read access to the files on the samba shares, without any problems.
Now several months later, I want to copy some new folders to my samba share and I consistently get the same result:
- Copying starts, a couple of files are copied without any problem and then suddenly copying stops.
- At that moment, when checking the virtual machine manager, it says the Rockstor VM is “Paused”, it stays like that indefinitely and the only way to get it up again is shutting down and rebooting the Rockstor VM.
- After restarting and checking the samba share, some files are copied correctly and some others have the file names, but with a “0” file size.
This happens consistently, no matter if I copy from my Linux Desktop (which is on another physical machine than the Rockstor VM) or from my Windows10 laptop.
The Rockstor VM is running a linux kernel version 4.12.4-1. There is an older kernel version on the VM, I tried rebooting with the older kernel version but get the same result.
I checked log.smbd and log.nmbd log files, the only error I can see in log.smbd is “could not find child xxx”
I am not 100% sure, but I think that the first bulk copying of files to the samba share in the beginning was done with a previous version of Rockstor. After that, I switched on automatic update, it updated to 3.9.2-57. Since then I did not copy any files to the samba share until now, which is when this problem occurred.
Any suggestions are welcome…
