# 1  


i have 2 raids connected via 2 servers to a third server with a third raid. the first 2 export via nfs to the third so that the third has all the data viewable on it.

previously i was able to then use samba to export to our macs. i don't recall anything changing, but now i can't view one of the raids even though the data is mounted on the third server.

more detail: computer1 connected to raid with data1-data10 directories.
computer2 connected to raid2 with data11-20 directories on it
computer3 connected to raid3 with data21-30 directories on it
computer1 and computer2 export to computer3.
data1-30 available and visible on computer3
computer3 has samba set up to export to macs
only data11-30 is viewable through the macs even though they are all under the same mount point (main data directory)

any help on where to begin troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.

masktest - Find differences in wildcard matching between Samba's implementation and that of a remote server. SYNOPSIS
masktest {//server/share} [-U user%pass] [-d debuglevel] [-W workgroup] [-n numloops] [-s seed] [-a] [-E] [-M max protocol] [-f filechars] [-m maskchars] [-v] DESCRIPTION
masktest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between Samba's own implementation and that of a remote server. It will run generate random filenames/masks and check if these match the same files they do on the remote file as they do on the local server. It will display any differences it finds. This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and Windows servers. OPTIONS
-U user%pass Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares. This parameter can be specified twice (once for the first server, once for the second). -s seed Seed the random number generator with the specified value. -n numops Set the number of operations to perform. -a Print the operations that are performed. -M max_protocol Maximum protocol to use. -f Specify characters that can be used when generating file names. Default: abcdefghijklm. -E Abort when difference in behaviour is found. -m maskchars Specify characters used for wildcards. -v Be verbose VERSION
This man page is correct for version 4.0 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
This utility is part of the Samba[1] suite, which is developed by the global Samba Team[2]. masktest was written by Andrew Tridgell. This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij. NOTES
