    • Apple related problem - Copy / Move Files from local Computer to CIFS-SMB Share failed

      Good Morning in the Morning :)

      i got a new problem... trying to copy / move Files from my local Macbook to any CIFS/SMB Share.
      When i try to do this, (mainly observed with bigger Files 1 GB > more) i got a message:

      "File XXX could not copied, because it´s already in use" (but of cause it´s not). When i do
      it on the same computer using Windows as VM in Parallels it works perfectly.

      Does anyone have the same problem ? Any idea how to fix that ?

      Thanks in advance and have a nice day @all.

    • Hello Tom,

      sorry for responding that late, but i first had to do some tests within the last days....

      Ok, here my results:

      I added this line into Extra-Otions and did some tests... SMB2 is definitely not working, because very slow and a lot of times it stopped the copy-job without any reason. So i changed it to "SMB3" and this is working perfectly !

      @'all

      who ever have the same problem i suggest to give it a try adding this line into extra-options using SMB3 (restart of the system is needed).

      @Tom

      Thanks for your help, i really appreciate that.

      Thread can be closed !

    • To start the old smb you can also just go to your Finder, hit CMD+k and type in "smb:\\IP"

      Not neccesarrily - this should also do the trick:
      /System/Library/StartupItems/Samba/Samba restart

      BTW - I do not recommend to change the things on your system. However I still use afp only since TimeMachine is using it.

    • Thanks @WastlJ :)

      I also use afp but just for running TimeMachine. As i also have some Windows Clients in the Network i decide to create CIFS for them and using them as well with my MAC. Whatever... it´s running now and i´m happy :)

      Thanks again for your support and closing the Thread ;)

    • We should not close this thread because:

      I had the problem of slow samba speeds with smb3 (see my thread some days ago)

      You have it other way round ... how fast is your samba? I do with smb2 close to 110mb/s which almost maxes out the connection. With more then one simulta transfers i max out the gbit connection with around 120.

      With smb3 it was much more slower.

      So: WHY???

      And its still a little bit slower then with afp.

      For me the question remains: Is the Debian7 smb / afp version modern enough?

      (i did post comparsions between omv and freenas in my thread)

      I use OSX and you can force OSX to use SMB1 stack if youre in mavericks. Try connecting to the share cmd+K and use the URL like this cifs://server/share You can test it, if you're satisfied with the behaviour you can default it with some config in OSX.

    • Hello,

      thanks, i will try it like described using: "cifs://server/share" actually i´m connected by using: "smb://server/share".

      @tom_tav

      Not sure if i could deliver correct values at the moment as i´m part of the beta seed program and using 10.10 already.

      just try the blackmagic speed test, would be interesting!

      Which samba & netatalk versions are with 10.10beta?


      I think apple ships with own custom SMB stack since lion or mountain lion, not related to the one developed by samba.org. As for netatalk I think they use AFP and I am not sure what version. As I understand netatalk is an implementation to work with AFP, so they are not related in mac os x.
      Rumours says Apple is going to dismiss AFP soon.
