Build Location: http://releases.alfresco.com/Enterprise-4.2/4.2.4/build-00082/ALL/


When two users on a Terminal Server running Windows Server 2008 R2 tries to connect to Alfresco CIFS-share at the same time one off them gets disconnected.

How to reproduce:
1. Mount your Alfresco CIFS-share on E:
2. Log on to a Terminal Server instance with two users.
3. Go to share E:
4. Press F5 at the same time on both computers at the same time. (sometime it needs multiple F5 but not always)

Fixing the problem:
I've been looking through the code making the disconnect and found that the Alfresco assumes that if you come from the same RemoteAddress or RemoteName then you are the same user. Resulting in the problem with disconnecting users on Terminal Servers.

The code can be found in function disconnectClientSessions() (SMBSrvSession.java) and lookes like this:
// Check for an address/client name match

if ( curSess.getSessionId() != getSessionId()) {

// Check the IP address

if ( hasRemoteAddress() && curSess.hasRemoteAddress()) {

// Check if the IP addresses match

if ( getRemoteAddress().equals( curSess.getRemoteAddress()))

{ addrMatch = true; addrStr = getRemoteAddress().getHostAddress(); }

else if ( hasRemoteName() && curSess.hasRemoteName()) {

// Check if the remote NetBIOS names match

if ( getRemoteName().equals( curSess.getRemoteName()))

{ addrMatch = true; addrStr = getRemoteName(); }


// Check if the session matches the current session address/client name

if ( addrMatch == true)

{ // DEBUG if ( Debug.EnableInfo && hasDebug(DBG_NEGOTIATE)) debugPrintln("Disconnect existing session from " + addrStr + ", sess=" + curSess); // Disconnect the existing session //curSess.closeSession(); // Update the disconnected session count discCnt++; }
