[Samba] smbmount: reading changes ntfs journal

Hi @all!

I'm new to this list and neither a samba nor a Windows specialist.

That said: We have some linux servers mounting windows shares. The
problem is that reading files on the share changes the journal / USN
on the Windows side. Now our backup guys are backing up a lot of stuff
that hasn't really changed because the journal tells them different.
Even when I mount read- only a simple cat or less on a file causes this.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks in advance
