Unhappy PQDI image server Using RedHat 3es

Good Day,

I am in the process of setting up RedHat 3ES on a Dell 2600 server. This machine has multiple NIC's (3 at this point) and is to be used as an image server for our factory processes.

In setting up DHCPD to operate on the individual interfaces and provide access, I have had success, works great.

In setting up SAMBA to operate with the specific subnets and provide usable file transfers, I have had success, works great.

In transferring files via either a windoze or Linux box in either direction I have had success, works great, and fast since it is all gigabit.

In running the PowerQuest PQDI program over the network, I have has success, works great.

The PQDI program opens, runs, allows you to select the *.pqi file in question, I have tried several, and acts like it is starting the image transfer. Initial speed is usually reported at around 200 MB/Min or better. After it gets about 5% done, it essentially stops. Sometimes it goes further but for the most part I have never made it past like 20% or so before it tells me that the image file is corrupt.

Hey it works elsewhere, it works on RedHat 7.3 using the same method, files, smb.conf file etc. etc. etc.

Any ideas as to where to look?

I know that on the 3ES box, winbindd is not running and fails. Need to check this as I am not sure of the implications. I will check to see for sure if it is running on the RedHat 7.3 box in the morning.

My frustration comes from the fact that I can see the files. I can transfer files, big ones, in both directions. It all seems to work fine until I run the drive image program. Actually the program itself runs fine. It just crashes after it starts to pull in the image.

I have also tried running the PQDI program on the local boot (usb)

After walking around in circles for a while and checking everything I can think of I figured it was time to see if somebody else has had this situation occur.

Any information you may have that is relevant would be appreciated. I will respond to questions ASAP.

Tiny's brain hurts. :-(

And I hope you have all had a Merry Christmas.

Thanks in advance for your replys.
