Description Steve Winfield (mai address dead) 2004-06-08 05:39:23 UTC
smbtar (/usr/bin/smbtar3) ignores both the '-d' or '-t' options and simply writes
'tar.out' to the local directory. For example, if i execute the following :

smbtar -v -s DEAN -d /mnt/sdb1/dean -x Drawings -u dean -p FgnbhYt

the verbose output reports that it can't find '\mnt\sdb1\dean' which of course
it won't if that's really what it's attempting to do. The backup itself works fine
but won't write to the correct location. On examining the code of 'smbtar3' i
can find that the value passed as the -d option '$cdcmd' does in fact appear to
hold the -d value i specified but i can't figure out how that value then becomes
'\mnt\sdb1\dean', i can't understand the script well enough to do that. Very
frustrating when this sort of thing happens.

-t works fine for me -d not. it's an issue of smbclient
