I'm running samba 4.77 on Fedora 27 with Kernel 4.16.12. I've got a fairly basic samba config, which I have posted below. I use Windows 10 clients. This problem only ever seems to happen on my samba share and I'm hoping that someone will be able to help.
From time to time, but more often than not, Windows Explorer hangs for a long time (10-20 minutes) when browsing my file share. Often I've right clicked on a file and am trying to use the "Open With" menu. Before the sub menu even opens Explorer will hang and be non-responsive. I've even restarted Samba during this which does not fix it. Often this can happen immediately just after a Windows reboot. The latest episode went like this:
11:31 PC starts up Windows 10 11:32 click the "Open with" menu. Windows Explorer actually dies this time and restarts itself. 11:34 Explorer very slow to give me control over any of the "View" options (details, icon, list etc) 11:34:45 Right click "Open with" and get the (Not Responding) problem 11:51:45 It responds
I just happened to be collecting a Tcpdump for this Windows client on port 445 for the duration of the incident. This packet capture is available here: http://www.edcint.co.nz/tmp/smb.fails.tcpdump
Is anyone able to help?
