Description Max Amanshauser 2004-11-14 08:57:24 UTC
First of all: I am not entirely certain if this is a samba or kernel bug.

I am running 2.6.9 with 3.0.7-Debian. My shares are on ext3 filesystems.

With Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 as the client some files and dirs just
don't show up. They are not chosen randomly, but always stay the same.

  File: `dnb'
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   directory
Device: 902h/2306d      Inode: 44662786    Links: 6
Access: (0775/drwxrwxr-x)  Uid: ( 1001/fanopanic)   Gid: ( 1001/fanopanic)
Access: 2004-11-14 16:42:36.284940520 +0100
Modify: 2004-10-23 23:46:18.000000000 +0200
Change: 2004-11-07 14:10:01.000000000 +0100

Above is the stat-output before renaming the dir to something else. After
renaming it, it suddenly shows up in explorer. Even after renaming it back to
the original name, it stays visible.

  File: `dnb'
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   directory
Device: 902h/2306d      Inode: 44662786    Links: 6
Access: (0775/drwxrwxr-x)  Uid: ( 1001/fanopanic)   Gid: ( 1001/fanopanic)
Access: 2004-11-14 16:46:12.605054864 +0100
Modify: 2004-10-23 23:46:18.000000000 +0200

None of the missing dirs/files contain any special characters.

Accessing the missing dirs/files over UNC doesn't work either, however, the
files show up by cd'ing to the share in cmd.exe and typing 'dir'.

With Linux 2.6.9 as a client the problem does not exist at all.

I just tried 3.0.8-Debian and the reported problem is gone. Sorry to have
bothered you. :)

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
