hi Samba users

did someone have some success by using shadow_copy2 and samba 4 ?

no success by me (debian squeeze, samba 4.1.3), with :
        path = /vms/shares/in3
        vfs objects = shadow_copy2
        shadow:snapdir = ../in3s
        shadow:basedir = /vms/shares
        shadow:sort = desc

I can see the snapshot list, read snapshot, but cannot restore or copy it : it lands with a :
> /usr/sbin/smbd: disk_free: sys_fsusage() failed. Error was : No such file or directory


thanks and regards
