SMA Backup Transfer Failing part way through file transfer

12/05/2019 403 views

We've started using the offboard backup transfer provided by the SMA using a SMB share, however it seems the file transfer fails out with NT_STATUS_INVALID_NETWORK_RESPONSE about 1/3 of the way through the transfer. Has anyone seen this issue before or know of a best practices that can help me out with this?

  • Please give us more details about your environment. What is the exact OS where the Samba share is located. Have you tried other Samba shares?

This is a pretty general error, unfortunately. Can you tell how big the data being transferred is? What OS is the SMB share on? Are you attempting the transfer during high traffic hours and if so could you test it after hours to see if you get different results? Finally, do you have anything on your network (or between networks depending on your environment) that could be causing a timeout?
