BOT: How is the load on your server Mark ? Just seen a few posts about this problem, and load was one of the considerations.
Load on the Buffalo should be low as well; we have other Buffalos where 10 boxes are hammering the Buffalo simultaneously. Only this Zimbra box talks to this Buffalo during backups. No other boxes even have a share mounted on the Buffalo (yet) either.
All the best,
Hmmm, we did have a similar problem here (non ZCS related) and it was fixed by addingto smb.conf.Code:level2oplocks = True oplocks = True
For cheap storage thats smart have a look at open-e.com I use a few of these where I don't need to go to a fibre san setup.
