Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)


If transferring (mainly) huge files via scp from an external machine to a shared folder in Linux guest results for some files (not all) reproducable in a Protocol error on scp and the resulting file is corrupt afterwards:

test@virtualbox:~/SharedFolder$ scp storage:test.tar.gz .
test.tar.gz                                                                                                                               100%   16MB 458.7KB/s   00:36
./test.tar.gz: Protocol error

test@virtualbox:~/SharedFolder$ ls -lsh
insgesamt 15M
15M -rwxrwxrwx 1 test test 15M 2009-12-04 17:43 test.tar.gz

When running the same scp with same file in a not shared folder, the resulting files are in a fine state:

test@virtualbox:/tmp$ scp storage:test.tar.gz .
test.tar.gz                                                                                                                               100%   16MB 458.7KB/s   00:36
test@virtualbox:/tmp$ ls -lsh
insgesamt 17M
 17M -rw-r--r-- 1 test test  17M 2009-12-04 17:57 test.tar.gz

The strange thing is that this problem does not occur for all files. But if you have a affected file, this is reproducable all the time. Till now I only have the feeling, that the chance to run into this problem is higher in case the transferred file is huge (several MB). For files of only a few KB I have not encountered this problem yet.
