has anybody else experienced this / discovered a work around ?
platform: Linux i386
xfspatch: 1.0.1 (for 2.4.17)
I create a list of files (500 total) in a directory on the xfs file
samba is exporting this directory, nfs is also exporting this directory.
via win2k (samba/smb) a total of around 8 files are missing.
via nfs3(irix 6.5.11) around 20 files are missing.
according to the local file system (xfs1.0.1) all these files are
I can correct the nfs3 problem by dropping the mount point down to nfs2.
the only reason I assume that this may be an xfs problem is that an
export from the same
system which originates on an ext2 partition, mounted via samba or
nfs(3) does not
fail to display files.
the command I used to create the xfs file system was:
mkfs -t xfs -l internal,size=8000b -d name=/dev/sda1
this is being created on a 250gb hardware raid.
originally the drive was partitioned on an SGI Octane (irix 6.5.11)
the file system was however created on the above linux server.
here is some extra machine information which may help:
