I found this today, which seems very relevant and helpful: stackoverflow.com/questions/74626/…

Interesting proposal. I'd have given it a go if I didn't already have success with the other solution.

This seems to have solved the problem, I should mention.

@GeekyDeaks: Sounds like a good idea, though I don't know how to make use of the resultant cifs.pcap file to make those determinations.

Good idea. I've put this in place, and will see what happens.

@cornelinux: In this case, neither server is crashing.

@c4f4t0r: How do I check? I don't believe it ever goes into a "hard" hibernate mode. At most, a "soft" screensaver mode.

Most of these timeouts in the documentation you linked are just a few hundred seconds, with the largest being 20 minutes. With the network I have, the two machines in question can both stay idle for several hours, and the CIFS connection does not have any problems. The problem behaviour described is sporadic and I do not know any steps to reproduce it, other than "use the machines normally for a period of 2 months, and eventually it will happen".

@cornelinux: I don't think NFS and CIFS can be compared. I'd expect their behaviour to be different.

@Schrute: I assume whatever defaults are on Linux (iptables?), and Windows are running. You think the firewalls are timing out connections? I'd never heard of such a thing.
