SMB2: Resource temporarily unavailable returned when reconnecting to expired or deleted session

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • RHEL7 SMB clients now reconnect to a SMB2 session after it is expired or deleted.
  • However, the SMB client receives Resource temporarily unavailable, errno 11, instead of transparently recovering when accessing the SMB share via # stat or # ls when requesting up-to-date inode information.
  • Depending on an application's activity during reconnect, no error may be returned, i.e. Write Request.
