hi ya samba-gurus..
I'm currently using Linux-2.0.35 to backup NT boxes...
linux-2.0.35 + smbmount-2.0.1 works find for things like
smbmount //NT/C /NT_mnt ...etc...
find /NT_mnt -mtime -1 | tar zcvf /backup/foo.tgz -T -
but it fails miserabley on linux-2.2.5 w/ smbmount-2.0.x w/ smbd-2.0.3
( smbmount from smbfs and samba-2.0.3 )
- some linux programs will change all your time stamps on the NT box...
( the last modified or creation time stamps are NOT compatible )
( the last accessed time stamps is fine...
- it makes a mess of your CVS on NTs ( nope, something I inherited )...
commands that works.
tar cvf ... /NT_mnt/
ls -laR /NT_mnt
touch -a /NT_mnt/*
commands that fails... ( changes the timestamps on NT's )
tar zcvf ... /NT_mnt
touch [-m] /NT_mnt
Is there some patches I can apply to fix this timestamp problem ??
have fun linuxing...
