Re: System issues resulting from disconnected SMB shares
Authored by: pfurbacher on Jan 22, '03 12:15:04PM

This issue has plagued me for a very long time. At the end of the day, I always shut down my Win2K box, but leave this Powerbook running. If I forget to unmount the shares from the Win2K box, this Powerbook effectively becomes unusable, for an eternity. I have to reboot the other machine, unmount, and then shut it down, just to continue doing some work.

Quite a while ago, I submitted a bug report to Apple on this issue: At least, there ought to be a better time-out length (currently, it doesn't seem to ever time-out). I don't recall what their response was, but I bet that if a good number of bug reports were filed on this issue, they might actually think about doing something to resolve the problem.

So, if you do have a problem with this, such that it affects your productivity, please file a bug report at You'll be doing all of us a favor.
