I've notice a strange behaviour in smbfs and I was not able to understand
it, so I want to share it with some other
We have some Solaris 7 machines with samba server and some linux workstations
with Suse7.3 and SuSE 8.1 OS.
When we mount on the linux workstation on share of the Solaris machine we see
the file modification timestamp wrong by one hour.
I was thinking about a problem in timezone settings, but the very strange
thing is that if I touch a file from the workstation the time stamp is
correct (and if you type a ls -l on the solaris machine the date is correct
But if you make the opposite (touch a file from solaris) on the linux machine
is again one hour wrong.
Timezone of Linux workstations is set to CEST while on solaris machines is
set to MET DST.
I've tried also to change the timezone on linux clients to MET, but nothing
changed. (in any case MET and CET are either GMT+1, isn't it?)
Finally, using smbclient timestamps are correct. It seems that the problem is
related on the linux smbfs. Mounting a linux share with smbfs the problem
Someone has any idea? I've tried to read many docs but without success.
