The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1325
tar always stores full path
Last modified: 2013-02-18 13:30:56 UTC
I would like to be able to use sbmclient to create a tarfile of everything
under a certain point in a CIFS directory tree and re-create that portion of
the tree on another machine. Whether I explicitly cd to the starting point or
use the -D option, the tarfile still contains the entire path.
For example, consider a share that has the following directories:
I want to create a tar starting at /dirC/dirD, without the './dirC/dirD/'
prepended to the filenames in the archive. dirE should be represented in the
archive as './dirE', not as './dirC/dirD/dirE'.
I experience the same problem with Samba 2.2.7 on RedRat Linux 7.3.
