Thread: Samba shares giving Input/output errors

  1. #1

    Default Samba shares giving Input/output errors


    I installed all updates on my Leap 42.3 box Friday. Since then, I've been unable to copy files to and from the machine via the directories shared with Samba.

    I'm convinced that the issue is not hardware, because I can successfully access the files over the network with rsync and smbcopy. Nor is the problem with the client machine (also running Leap 42.3 and updated Friday as well), as it fails in the same way with a second machine running Debian Jesse. A Windows 10 machine also fails.

    On the Linux clients, the mount appears normal, but attempts to copy files from the share fail with "cannot open '[filename]' for reading: Input/output error" and copying to the share fails with "cannot create regular file '[filename]': Input/output error

    On the Windows client, the share mounts, but any attempt to access it gives a "Windows can't access this disc" message which suggests the disc "might be corrupt."

    The relevant sections of the server's smb.conf are:
            workgroup = TEAM-H
            printing = cups
            printcap name = cups
            printcap cache time = 750
            cups options = raw
    #       printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator
            username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
            map to guest = Bad User
            include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
            logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
            logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
            logon drive = P:
            security = user
            ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap
            ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
            ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com
            passdb backend = smbpasswd
            encrypt passwords = Yes
            add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd  -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
            domain logons = No
            domain master = Yes
            local master = Yes
            os level = 65
            preferred master = Yes
            wins support = No                                                                                                                    
            usershare max shares = 100                                                                                                           
            usershare allow guests = Yes                                                                                                         
            unix extensions = Yes                                                                                                                
            ldap admin dn =                                                                                                                      
            netbios name = TIRA-CHAN
            comment = All shared files on this server
            path = /media/sharedData/
            writeable = yes
            read only = No
            follow symlinks = Yes
            wide links = Yes
            #inherit acls = Yes
    The clients are mounting the share with:
    //tira-chan/files      /home/solop/Network/Files  cifs    credentials=/etc/samba/creds,uid=solop,gid=users 0 0
    Any suggestions? Ones that don't involve changing to a different server protocol?

    Thanks in advance!

    OK, now I feel like a complete imbecile.

    After a lot of thrashing around, I finally realized my / partition was full. Deleted some garbage, restored my original smb.conf, remapped the drive, and presto! Everything back to normal.
