What is kernel version?
What is symptom?

Have you opened a bug against the project bugzilla (

The dmesg (Linux message log) will show certain serious errors, but
enabling additional cifs debugging flags can increase the debug
output. Setting /proc/fs/cifs/DebugData to 1 will cause additional
cifs informational messages to be logged, and setting
it to 3 (“echo 3 > /proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI”) will also log return codes
from most cifs entry points to dmesg.
One of the most powerful tools for analyzing networking or network
filesystem problems is “Wireshark." shows instructions how
to do wireshark captures.
