Thread: [Samba] ZFS shadow copy patches

  1. [Samba] ZFS shadow copy patches


    I was wondering if there was any news on the patches proposed by Ed Plese
    last year regarding updates for shadow copies to be better compatible with
    Solaris ZFS:

    http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba...ry/051510.html


    Reviewing the release notes for the upcoming 3.2 release:

    http://us3.samba.org/samba/ftp/pre/W...-3-2-0pre2.txt


    I don't see any mention of changes to shadow copy support.

    I'm tentatively planning to use the binary module Ed supplied
    (http://www.edplese.com/samba-with-zfs.html) but would prefer not to deploy
    a configuration providing functionality that wouldn't eventually be
    incorporated into mainline Samba.

    Thanks...

    Despite having only few minor changes to make to the patches, various
    circumstances delayed the process and I never got back to it to get it
    finished up and resubmitted for inclusion. I finished this up tonight
    and sent it off to the developer that had previously reviewed the
    patches.

    There's a new shadow_copy2 module in Samba 3.2 that has much of the
    functionality of the enhancements I'd been working on for the existing
    shadow copy module.

    Cool, thanks much.

    I didn't see any mention of that in the release notes, perhaps it hasn't
    been added to the documentation yet.
