The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3551
smbclient modifies file-atime on smbserver (missing noatime-option)
Last modified: 2006-03-02 05:33:32 UTC
I have the following Setup:
A samba-share hosts sourcecodes for a PHP-Project on a Windows-Maschine. Eclipse is running on this machine as beeing the IDE.
The share is mounted by a Linux smbclient. An Apacheserver is configured to use that mount-point as Document-root.
Each time, apache accesses a file for reading on this Documentroot, eclipse moans that the file is beeing modified because the modification-time of the file was modified by smbclient. As I did some more checks on that behaviour it turns out, that a simple 'cat' on that file is a enough for smbclient to update modification-time of the file on the server.
As Windows-Clients don't have such behaviour and smbclient-documentation don't show an option to supress it, I suppose, this is a bug......
you are talking about mounting and mount points. You are not talking about smbclient then. Do you mean mount.cifs or smbmount?
