The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 11706
Wrong message "mv 'file' and 'dir/file' are the same file"
Last modified: 2016-02-04 17:48:12 UTC
this is my first bug report, so I'm not quite sure whether I'm right here.
My samba version is samba-3.6.3-0.58.1 with SLES 11 so less then 4.0.
But the behaviour might still be the same. At least I couldn't find a matching bug report or fix.
We mount a windows share with
mount -t cifs -o user=...,password=... <server>:<share> /tmp/demo
Commands on linux side:
ls > file-test
mv file-test dir-test
On windows side, e.g. the explorer, move file "file-test" up to directory "demo".
On linux side again:
"ls -l" shows "file-test" und "dir-test" as expected.
"ls -l dir-test" shown an empty directory also as expected.
But this is the unexpected and unwanted behaviour (or am I wrong?):
"mv file-test dir-test" leads to error message
"mv: `file-test' and `dir-test' are the same file" and no movement at all.
Sorry, I put the wrong error message at the end of the description.
Correct is: "mv: 'file-test' and 'dir-test/file-test' are the same file" and no movement at all.
Please try and reproduce against the latest version of Samba (4.3.x). 3.6.x is not maintained by the Samba Team anymore.
