Ticket #6512 (closed defect: fixed)
Can't set file times or permissions from within Solaris guest on files in shared folder => fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||foobar42||Owned by:|
Linux host, running ext3/ext4 (same behaviour for both), Solaris 10u8 guest, mounted shared folder. If I use 'tar xpf' to unpack a tar I get
tar: can't set time on <file>: Operation not applicable tar: warning - file permissions have changed for <file> (are 0100600, should be 0755)
and using 'gtar xpf' I get
gtar: <file>: Cannot utime: Operation not applicable gtar: <file>: Cannot change mode to rwxr-xr-x: Operation not applicable
Running truss I see the same error for both:
<pid>: futimesat(-3041965, "<file>", 0x08047A40) Err#89 ENOSYS ... <pid>: chmod("<file>", 0755) Err#89 ENOSYS
The tar/gtar completes, but with a non-zero exit code. And of course just running 'chmod' or 'touch' fails with ENOSYS too.
This makes all sorts of scripts and operations fail, rendering the shared folder pretty much unusable for anything except simple copying.
