Question CIFS Mount not showing large directories (file counts).


I have a mounted cifs share from one of my windows servers, which works for the most part really well - unfortunately, when the file count in the directory gets to a certain point 80/90 ish (not sure of the exact number) - it just returns this error:

Code:
ls: reading directory .: Invalid argument
It works fine when mounted on other linux systems, though on my FC6 workstation this happens..

Any ideas why ?

command used to mount:
Code:
mount -t cifs -o credentials=/some/file //SERVER/SHARE /mnt/point

Unhappy Fedora 6 CIFS Problem...

Hi,

I have a similar problem when attempting to mount a network folder under Fedora 6 using command:

mount.cifs //SERVER/share /mnt/point -o rw,uid=root,user=<username>

Does anyone have any explanation as to why the files / subfolders under the mount point are not visible?

Is there a way for CIFS to ignore the file count or 'unhide' the files within?

TIA,

Zooty
