    Question Samba - large share - clients don't see all files.

    Summary: I have an Ubuntu 12.04 server, Samba version 3.6.3. One share is a single folder containing 601 files. Accessing the share from my Ubuntu/Mint clients only lists 524 files.

    Details: The 601 files I am trying to share reside on a 1.4TB xfs partition/LV. When first set up I could only see 124 files, most of them uppercase+mangled. At this stage I added 'mangle case = no', 'mangled names =no', 'mangled stack = no', 'fstype = Samba', 'hide dot files = no', 'hide special files = no', 'hide unreadable = no', 'hide unwriteable files = no', 'protocol = NT1'. That bumped the visible files up to 524. testparm told me the 'mangle/d' options don't mean or do anything so commented them out... still 524 of 601 files visible.

    Guessing that the fix will be some option in the [global] segment, I have been scouring the interweb for clues as to what will help. No luck yet...

    Motive: While this particular share can be migrated to NFS (so much easier to configure and secure) I do have Windows users that would benefit from access to this share (read-only) and whom I will continue to provide separate network storage shares per user. I also don't want this to become an issue they bring to me regarding their network shares either.

    Question: What is causing this mangle/hide behaviour? is the 'mangle stack = ' option replaced or removed? should Samba be right for 'fstype="? what about 'protocol = NT1'?

    Thank you in advance.
