The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6137
change notify doesn't work on HP-UX
Last modified: 2016-04-29 01:08:20 UTC
I have compiled samba 3.0.30 on HP-UX 11iv2 but "change notify" seems to be broken, which was working with 3.0.23. I could see change notify was re-written in 3.0.25, which changed samba to use inotify to get any file system changes.
But inotify is only implemented in linux (correct me if I'm wrong). So how can I make this work for HP-UX which does not have NOTIFY functionality in the file system.
smb connection notify is independwnt on inotify. this is not really a bug report here also.
