I have looked into this error and it seems that it hasn't been discussed yet - or at least I can't find any information relating.
I'm having issues transferring files, usually larger files over a couple of hundred MB.
Here is the setup:
- QNAP 410 as iSCSI Target with multiple LUNs. (CRC is turned on (Data Digest and Header Digest)
- Server 2003 with iSCSI Initiator version 2.08 - build 3825
(I'm copying files from anothe machine to shares on Server 2003 => into TrueCrypt volume ergo onto the NAS)
I have mounted the LUN and formatted it with TrueCrypt using NTFS (Full format, not a quick one).
What happens is some files, mainly RAR/Compressed files, appear as if they copy but fail. I've tested this in a number of ways and can repeat the process every time.
So I thought to check transfer over iSCSI without TrueCrypt in between, a plain NTFS format - no problem at all.
So it would seem TrueCrypt is at least part of the problem here.
I haven't tried copying directly from the server yet, I will try that. I also haven't tried it without CRC but fail to see how that would affect this. I will update with my findings later.
In the meantime does anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong?
Thanks for your time.
I copied a set of files, the ones I was having issues with, to the server then from there I copied those into two places within the TrueCrypt volume (Mounted on the NAS).
- A seperate directory create in the root of the volume
- The same initial directory I was using in the first instance
Both worked fine. So it now seems clear that this is a link between TrueCrypt, iSCSI and Windows Shares.
I say this because I originally setup the whole system using TrueCrypt volume files, not iSCSI. I changed it as it didn't suit my requirements - day wasted as well. While I had this setup though I copied my entire file set to the volume files and all files copied without error - over the network, from a pc, to the server where TrueCrypt had the volume files mounted from the NAS.
I didn't bother turning off CRC on the iSCSI system as I highly doubt that is the cause in light of this finding.
So any ideas?
