I have an old HP-UX system running version 11.11, it has a cifs mount configured to a netapp filer.
In the past several days we've been seeing some odd behaviour for the share where files can be created & accessed if the full path is used, but wildcard listings are failing. Remounting the share seems to correct this behaviour. A practical example:
cd /path/in/myshare touch newfile.txt ls * #finds nothing ls newfile.txt #finds file umount /sharepath mount -a ls * #finds the file
Anyone have any guesses as to what's causing this odd behaviour?
