- Read the instructions: https://www.samba.org/~asn/reporting_samba_bugs.txt
- Report the problem in the Samba bug tracking system: https://bugzilla.samba.org/
|Before you report a bug, verify that you are running a maintained version of Samba and update, if necessary.|
If you run into problems with the SMB client in the Linux kernel (cifs.ko, mount.cifs) don't hesitate to report it.
For the kernel client things are a bit more complex. There are 2 bug tracking systems which you should look at to see if your problem has already been reported:
If you report a bug, a network capture and a kernel console log output is always helpful.
# make the kernel as verbose as possible echo 'module cifs +p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control echo 'file fs/cifs/* +p' > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control echo 1 > /proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI echo 1 > /sys/module/dns_resolver/parameters/debug # get kernel output + network trace dmesg --clear tcpdump -s 0 -w trace.pcap & pid=$! sleep 3 mount.cifs ....cd ... ls.. etc.. (the thing that fails) sleep 3 kill $pid dmesg > trace.log
This should produce a trace.pcap and a trace.log file.
Be sure to mention your kernel version, server software and version.
