I have just installed the latest CIFS 1.2 ECO1 on OpenVMS 8.4,update7, created a share, mapped it on my WIndows 7 desktop and now I'm trying to do a SVN checkout, on Win7, of some piece of code to the share (DNB).
It fails with the following SVN message:
Error: Can't create directory 'V:\psk\vlib_cifs\build\.svn': The system cannot find
Error: the file specified.
Then I checkout the same code to another location, on windows, and try to copy it to my share, but that also fails with popup message saying "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in V:\psk\vlib_cifs\build. Verify item's location and try again. build".
The problem seems to be connected to the creation of the ".svn" directory on the share. The share is placed on an ODS-5 disk.
I'm new to CIFS and I can't find any info regarding this problem in the documents. And the logs on [var] didn't tell anything either.
Should I expect this to work, perhaps with some magic configuration, or is this a restriction in how I can use a CIFS share from Window 7?
Thanks for any input to this problem.
Here is the CIFS configuration in use.
# CIFS Server Main SMB.CONF file # To update admin users in global section, use # samba$root:[lib]admin_users_smb.conf [global] include = samba$root:[lib]core_smb.conf include = samba$root:[lib]generic_smb.conf include = samba$root:[lib]admin_users_smb.conf include = samba$root:[lib]%h_specific_smb.conf [homes] comment = Users homes share browseable = no read only = no [netlogon] comment = Netlogon share path = /samba$root/netlogon/ read only = yes guest ok = yes browseable = no write list = @Administrators, cifsadmin [print$] comment = Printer Driver Download Area path = /samba$root/print_drivers/ guest ok = yes read only = yes browseable = no vms path names = no write list = @Administrators, "@Print Operators", cifsadmin [profiles] comment = Network profile share path = /samba$root/profiles/ guest ok = no browseable = no store dos attributes = yes create mask = 04600 directory mask = 04700 read only = no profile acls = yes csc policy = disable hide files = /desktop.ini/outlook*.lnk/*Briefcase*/ [DNB] path = DSA1:[VCOMDEV] valid users = spp admin users = spp read only = no
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi, after some more test I can reproduce the problem(error?) much more easy.
Z:\ is my share defined as above.
Z:\>mkdir aaa Z:\>mkdir .xxx Z:\>cd aaa Z:\aaa>mkdir .xxx The system cannot find the file specified. Z:\aaa>mkdir bbb Z:\aaa>cd bbb Z:\aaa\bbb>mkdir .xxx The system cannot find the file specified. Z:\aaa\bbb>mkdir xxx.xxx Z:\aaa\bbb>
vms> di [.aaa...] Directory VCOMDEV_ROOT:[000000.aaa] bbb.DIR;1 1/40 13-NOV-2012 19:41:51.06 Total of 1 file, 1/40 blocks. Directory VCOMDEV_ROOT:[000000.aaa.bbb] xxx^.xxx.DIR;1 1/40 13-NOV-2012 19:44:40.01 Total of 1 file, 1/40 blocks. Grand total of 2 directories, 2 files, 2/80 blocks.
It seems that directories beginning with "." is only allowed on root level??

I believe those issues are resolved in a patch set for CIFS which may be obtained from:
$ ftp ftp.usa.hp.com
Unzip the patch set, shutdown CIFS and run in the included installation command procedure...
