Linux-x86_64 Error: 5: Input/output errorThis is a generic I/O error. In "/var/log/messages" do you see any messages from about this time?
I have not seen any messages from that time. I will ask the developers to run the data pump again and will check the messages.
Have you done basic investigation:
-Does the directory exist? (ls /mount/windows/BI_DP_QA421)
-Is the smb filesystem mounted readwrite? (mount)
-Are you able to make a file (touch testfile)
-Are you able to put contents in the file (echo "blahblah" >> testfile)
The answer is yes to all the questions. The folder exists, it is writable, mounted. I also created files, deleted files and copied files between the Linux and the share.
The problem started when we tried the data pump on RHEL 5.2. All was fine when it runs on a RHEL 4U7. From my research, smbfs was dropped from the 2.6 kernel and cifs was the replacment. On RHEL4 the share is mounted as smbfs and data pump have no problems. On RHEL 5 u 2 it is mounted as cifs - and the erros occure.
