RedHat AS3 problem :: "lease broken - owner pid = ####"
RedHat Advanced Server 3
kernel = 2.4.21-15.0.4.ELsmp
I setup a dell server with samba as a primary domain controler. All the services run well. I can create shares and transfer files like one would expect from a file server. My problem arrises when I map to my "ghost" share and attempt to reghost a machine. The ghost session quickly fails after it begins with some error reported by ghost (sorry, dont have the message to write down).
The server (using dmesg) reports "lease broken - owner pid = 3589". Actually, any large file transfer generates this kernel error. Top shows that there is high cpu access and very high iowaite cycles.
I attempted to tweak the /etc/sysctl.conf file with
vm.bdflush = 90 2000 0 0 5000 10000 100 50 0
vm.kswapd = 1024 64 16
vm.page-cluster = 5
vm.inactive_clean_percent = 100
vm.pagecache = 2 10 20
but the same errors keep showing up.
Oplocks in samba make no difference either turned on or off.
I've automounted the hdd that I use as my share target in fstab with "/dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ext3 defaults 0 1". I'm not sure if my options are correct or not though...
I'm pretty stumped as to what I can do to fix this problem. Anyone have any ideas?
