This problem is still present on both FreeBSD 4.11 and FreeBSD 6.0. I've
seen it against both Netware 4 servers via IPX, and on Netware 6 running
over IP. Performing an rsync backup of one of these servers, it will
happily plow along for a while, and then suddenly you get a message like:
rsync: read errors mapping "/mnt/data/path/to/some/file.dll": Unknown
error: 35208 (35208)
WARNING: path/to/some/file.dll failed verification -- update discarded
(will try again).
Followed by a torrent of "file has vanished" errors. Jumping to the
mount-point, I get:
/10.1.2.3:USER/DATA on /mnt/data (nwfs)
$ cd /mnt/data
ls: .: No such file or directory
I spoke to Boris Popov a while ago, and he had this to say:
"Such behavior usually caused by lost vnode reference and/or bugs in the
vnode traversal code. In the case of nwfs this also might be the bugs
in the full netware path reconstruction."
Does that mean enough to anyone to have a look at anywhere specific in
the code, or any suggestions on where I might look?
