  • Linux Lite: 3.6 32bit
Transferring a large quantity of music, .jpg, and .URL files from a Windows 10 desktop via a mapped drive to a Linux 4.2 server fails after a partial transfer and all folders on the target drive and the files on the root of the target volume are locked. There aren't any files visible in most of the locked folders on the target volume and folders inside of the locked folders are locked.  It appears that if a locked folder has files and folders in it, all files and folders at that level are locked and visible.  It appears that if the locked folders only contain folders, none of the downlevel folders or files are visible.  (I'm unable to definitely confirm this.)

Some terminal commands entered and the results are here:
Code: [Select]
marc > / > media > marc > data3 > cd /media/marc/data3/Media/
marc>  >marc > data3 > Media > dir
dir: reading directory '.': Input/output error

The other drives' files (two storage volumes and the OS drive) aren't locked.  The three storage volumes are RAID1 arrays, each consisting of two 1 TB drives.  The storage drives are on a Dell CERC 1.5 RAID controller.  The OS drive is on the motherboard controller.  (I don't think that the issue is caused by the RAID card but I've been wrong before.)  The locked files are only unlocked after rebooting the server. 

In the latest instance, I was trying to transfer approx. 15.4 GB of files ranging is size from ~200 bytes to ~117 MB. The transfer halted after transferring 3.68 GB (3,957,816,743 bytes) with the error "You need permission to perform this action".  The <user> account on Windows 10 is a member of the Administrators group and has the same name as the <user> account on the server.  The password for the <user> account on Windows 10 is the same as the password for the root account on the server.  The source drive on the Windows 10 workstation is NTFS and the target driver on the server is ext4. SMB 3 has been disabled on the Windows 10 computer.

This has been a problem for months. I've previously had Ubuntu and Linux Mint on this box and the issue began happening either in Ubuntu or in Linux Mint.

If logs etc. are needed I'll provide them.  Thanks to all.

I just tried to transfer the same files to another storage volume on the server.  This time it quit and locked up after 778 MB (816,055,682 bytes) was transferred.

"Linux 4.2 server"  Not sure what you are describing here. File manager, server type, network type, connection protocol all matter for further discussion. It's either a file type, authentication, networking method, or connection protocol problem. Generally SSH eliminates any issues with file transfer if you are using a Windows admin account with key exchange.

It's a Dell PowerEdge 1800 server running Linux Lite 4.2 as the OS. It's an ethernet network as a workgroup. I believe the protocol is TCP/IP.  I don't know the answers to your other questions.

It's a standard Linux Lite 4.2 installation with Webmin and TeamViewer added.

I don't know how to use SSH.

Once you get used to it you will find it more secure and more reliable. If your computers are in the same office, you can use normal wifi with public IPs, or private adhoc wifi, or ethernet connections. Doesn't matter which. Definitely worth learning how. From LL you will be able to connect with Thunar, or a nice client like Remmina, or the secure terminal. You can also set up to connect from outside your local network.

I'm working on it.  Am far better at it than a year ago.  But I fix Windows boxes, so have to keep a Windows box as my workstation, otherwise I start to forget stuff about Windows.

Since my last post I've been transferring a bunch of files to the server.  Once I began keeping the total size of the transferred files to ~1 GB or less, the target drive hasn't locket up and I haven't had to reboot the server.

@trinidad is the resident expert regarding win to lin network stuff. He's contributed to a number of threads here on the topic. Might pay to read through some of them.

not a Linux guy
Sorry to say there's no such thing, once you install your first linux distro you have become a linux guy....... it's more a question of are you a newbie, user or a complete NERD..

I'm happy to qualify for all 3 classes, as you never, ever stop learning new things in the world of linux.....

Happy nerding :)

It's getting weirder.

I've been remoting into my server with TeamViewer this afternoon so I can set up playlists in VLC Media Player.  I'm doing that by going to a folder, selecting all the audio files in it, and dragging and dropping them in the playlist pane of VLC Media Player. The first time, i did that with 20 - 25 audio files.  Everything worked.

I just did that with ~600 audio files.  VLC played the first file, then a couple of seconds of the second file, then started going trough the playlist playing one or two seconds of each track before it would crash to the next one. I was able to stop the playback, and? All the folders and files on the source drive for the playlist are locked.  Rebooting unlocked them.

We have worked through some things remotely. Fixed up shares, perms etc. Now we will wait and see :)

The problem isn't completely resolved.  It's likely that two different issues were causing the problem.  I'll fix the Windows folder permissions and report back.
