The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1160
File timestamps errors
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:28:57 UTC
There is an error in the "Last Modified" timestamp of files whenever sent over
to a Samba server (from a windows machine to a Linux server).
What happens is that if a file was last written on the 59th second of a minute
(which happens quite often on a busy server) the time is changed to the next
minute on the server. For example, if i modify, locally, a file at 4h23:59, and
copy this file to the server, it's last modified time will become 4h24:00 (on
the server itself, and when you download it back).
This causes problems when you assign files on this timestamp, especially if the
file was modified at an hour or day changing time (ex: 23h59:59 becomes 0h0:0,
the same day!! which push the file back in time by one day)
Anyways, it might not be a critical bug, but on our server, it does cause some
problems from time to time, which forced us to modify our client application to
counter this bug (by changing the seconds to 58 if they are 59).
please provide a level 10 debug log. Thanks.
no response. CLosing.
