I recently upgraded to 1.9.18p8, and noticed that smbtar no longer
automatically includes system files. I can't seem to find a way to include
the 'tarmode system' command in the smbtar shell script. If I add a -c
"tarmode system" to the $SMBCLIENT command line at the end of the smbtar
shell script, I get no tarred files at all.
Can anybody help me with this?
BTW, 'tarmode system' seems to be undocumented. (As are nosystem, hidden,
nohidden, verbose, noquiet, quite, noverbose.) I had to check the clitar.c
source to find this.
