I am having some problems using smbclient with the tar option to create a
I get the following error message
code 0 opening remote file [name of file]
Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
I get this error when I try to tar the full share. I can tar everything but
the directory that contains the bad file with out getting the error, and I
can tar only that directory without getting the error.
I am using samba 2.0.7 under solaris 2.5.1 (sparc). I have this problem on 2
systems one is an NT4 server, and the other is a Windows 2000 professional
system. I have no problems backing up the full share on another identical
system (same software, same hardware).
The commands and error message are shown below.
