I have encountered the weirdest problem ever. There is a samba share on a CentOS fileserver (let's call it SERVER). There are two types of clients Windows 7 and CentOS. So what happens: I edit a script file (simple text file) through a Windows7 workstation, it is a script ment to be run on CentOS clients. SERVER share is used as a common place for the edits. Then it turns out that those edits are invisible to my centOS clients (at least for some time). Like the content of the file is no updating (or is cached on the client so it doesn't get updated). Mounts are done by autofs. Everything seems to work except the problem above. I can't see any rule of that happening -it simply happens. I've never encountered any problems while creating files or deleting (they get created and deleted instanly) but those edit problems makes samba shares very dangerous to use. Any suggestions what might be the source of the problem ?
Can you try with the mount option
Newer systems have the equivalent
