Novell client connection very slow on CIFS share SFS
Today, i tried to install a new FileStore cluster and i have a big issue. My customer have Novell Client 4.91 SP5 for Windows installed on all computers, and just some server without this Novell Cient.
So, when we try to connect the CIFS share created on the new SFS cluster, it is very slow : More than 2 minutes to have the login box, and 2 minutes again to have the share content, and the browsing is impossible (too sloooow).
So, we uninstall the Novell client on the Windows XP computer, and after the reboot, it works normally. It works also from the computers/servers without Novell client.
My question : How to keep the Novell Client and have a CIFS share on the FileStore ?
I have already found this article on Novell forum :
Re: Slow mapping to samba share when novell client installed
That was it! Thanks your guys for the info. I opened 524 and 139 for samba and now it maps in seconds with the client and firewall up.
Thank you for your help.
