What are the CIFS timeouts?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • What are the CIFS timeouts?
  • Does the CIFS filesystem become accessible automatically after CIFS server is shut down and started again later without manually remounting the CIFS share?
  • What happens to the CIFS client after a timeout? Are some messages are output to /var/log/messages? Is the CIFS filesystem is automatically unmounted? Does the CIFS client keep trying to recover the accessibility until the disconnection is resolved?
