I think you're having a misunderstanding of the rsync algorithm and how the tool should be applied. Rsync's performance advantage comes from doing delta transfers-- that is, moving only the changed bits in a file. In order to determine the changed bits, the file has to be read by the source and destination hosts and block checksums compared to determine ...
Commenting out the printers section actually does nothing, add this to your smb.conf: load printers = no printing = bsd printcap name = /dev/null disable spoolss = yes (spoolss is not a typo)
Well, we finally appear to have resolved this issue in our environment. For the benefits of others, here's what we discovered and how we fixed the problem: To try and gain further insight into what was occurring before/during/after the delays we used Wireshark on a client machine to capture/analyse network traffic whilst that client attempted to access a ...
if you type the command net use \\SERVERNAME /u:DOMAIN\USER you will be prompted for the password of that user to be used when accessing that server

SMB might well be slower than some other file sharing protocols, and it might well be faster than some others. But that's not the important part. Instead of making that the question/argument, can you find a way to move on from that and ask whether SMB is as fast (or as slow!) as it is supposed to be. For example, can you transfer a file using FTP between ...
This really piqued my interest. I was able to replicate your findings in my lab with the same pattern of results that you describe. I used Procmon to to try to see what changes are made and almost gave up until I saw the following: That shows lsass.exe (Local Security Authority) writing to the local SAM and making a change(s) to the built-in Guest account ...
Whilst there are faster protocols than SMB it's not by any means inherently slow. It is however perhaps a little more susceptible to outside influences than other protocols, these being saturated servers, saturated segments etc. If I were a gambling man I'd suspect that your network could do with either a redesign or some investment as many company's ...
I believe that doing this will allow users to delete files from their desktop/documents folder etc, and still provide a way to restore from the recycle bin. I can confirm that with Folder Redirection, Recycle Bin still works on Windows 2008R2. Probably works on 2012 as well. But Folder Redirection and WinXP clients for example, Recycle Bin does not ...
Ports 137-139 are for NetBios/Name resolution. Without it you will have to access machines by IP address opposed to NetBIOS name. Example \\192.168.1.100\share_name opposed to \\my_file_server\share_name So port 445 is sufficient if you can work with IP addresses only.
Please identify which OSes you're using for both server and clients. In client OSes above 98/NT "Network Neighbourhood" has been superseded by "My Network Places". The location of this resource is defined by two registry entries: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\NetHood ...
They're OS X Finder metadata. You can disable them in 10.4 for remote filesystems, but 10.5 sets them to hidden on Windows. Regardless, you can disable them as well - but you have to do it for each user (or copy the preferences file).
It should be fine. Windows Explorer does a fine job of displaying filename case correctly. I use this in my smb.conf to make sure what I type in Explorer is what Samba uses (I set all of these per-share): case sensitive = True default case = lower preserve case = yes short preserve case = yes I ran through a quick test (Samba 3.0.24 on the backend, ...
In my experience the kernel mode server out performed samba with my clients. If performance is your number one concern, skip samba. That said, there are a number of limitations to the Solaris kernel-mode SMB/CIFS server, most notably: Only runs in the global zone. Samba can run in multiple isolated zones and/or the global zone simultaneously. Sharing ...
A more secure solution than that proposed by SvenW, and one that is more in keeping with the Apple way of doing things, is to add the password to the keychain. Here's how you would do it for an AFP share (I assume all you'd need to do is change the protocol specified by the -r option but I don't have the possibility of testing this with SMB right now; note ...
The short answer is: Meh. On a file "Move" (AKA Cut and Paste) between the same share it will simply change the index on the file server (pretty much instant). Unfortunately when you try to move between two different shares (Even on the same file server) or do a "copy" operation it does pull the data through the client PC (slow). On any "move" operation ...
you definitively do not want to do it... at least not to windows. ports to forward [both samba and windows]: tcp 135, 139, 445. possibly - but not necesarly 135-139 udp. part for accessing windows workstation 135, 445 tcp are multiplexed for plenty of purposes - including remote registry access, remote management, communication with domain controllers. ...
Yes. As far as I know, WebDAV is designed to work like a filesystem, over HTTP. For Apache there is mod_dav, and from a quick check on the Interwebs, IIS has it built-in, somehow. Maybe WebDAV is something that could help you. -Chris
Check na_options. http://filer/na_admin/man/man1/na_options.1.html cifs.smb2.enable This option enables SMB 2.0 support on the Filer. When this option is enabled, the Filer uses SMB 2.0 with a Windows client, if the client supports SMB 2.0. When this option is disabled, the Filer will not accept any new SMB 2.0 sessions; existing sessions ...
This command is a very little known secret of Samba. It returns IP adresses of all Samba servers in one's own broadcast domain: nmblookup __SAMBA__ This one returns a list of all NetBIOS names and their aliases of all Samba servers in the neighbourhood (it does a 'node status query'): nmblookup -S __SAMBA__ This one returns a list of all IP adresses of ...
The reason is most likely that Sever 2003 R2 uses SMB 1.0, While Server 2008 R2 uses SMB 2.1. The linked article there has a table which shows what version of the protocol you'll be able to use with which client-server combinations. A connection to Server 2003 R2 will always be limited to SMB 1.0. The newer versions of the SMB protocol include many ...
"smb 445 tcp filtered" does not means that something is listening on port 445. From nmap man page: Filtered. means that a firewall, filter, or other network obstacle is blocking the port so that Nmap cannot tell whether it is open or closed
If a user has rights to a sub-directory on a share, I believe it is possible to directly map to it. net use m: \\server\public\jprof\cs101\files You can't map M: (for example) directly to the share and navigate down, that's what messes some people up. To do that you'll have to get funky with permissions, and that's a lot of work.
Personally for a low number of Linux servers I wouldn't join them to the domain. If you and a couple of admins are going to be the only ones logging into the server itself, creating accounts on the couple of servers won't take long. The for the applications that run on the server, try to pick ones with ldap support if you want people to log into the ...
What is the OS of your client and server? One thing that can make a difference is to update your servers to windows 2008 and your clients to Vista. When you do this you get to take advantage of SMB2 which is less chatty, has larger buffers, and can do multiple things in a single request making it less sensitive to latency.
You've covered my usual suspects, but there is one word I didn't see in there and that's iptables. Could it be as easy as not having opened the right holes in the on-by-default firewall? I have had that whack me a time or three.
If you believe it is WebDAV, have you tried disabling WebDAV client? Services.msc -> webclient -> Stop/Disable Also it's never a bad idea to use Process Monitor from SysInternals to see whats going on behind the scenes when something isnt performing as expected.
Welcome to the wonderful world of SMB over any connection with higher than LAN latency. Everything you describe is perfectly normal for such scenarios, once you're over 20 ms things get significantly slower, in excess of 50 ms and it's painfully so. The protocol is very poorly designed for connections with higher than LAN latencies. Especially when working ...
