Last modified: 2016-06-23 01:37:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Red Hat Gluster Storage is getting interest for Windows file service.
Within Windows filesystems a capability exists for "Previous Versions"
This feature is often asked for in RHGS RFI/RFP trajects.
Currently we don't support this, however it seems to be a realistic possibility from a SAMBA perspective.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHGS 3.1 (and higher)
Create a SMB share, use a MS Windows client to connect to the RHGS SMB share
Try to access previous versions in Windows. This is not available.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a RHGS volume and export by SMB
2.Access the volume with MS Windows
3.Try to access previous versions in Windows
This feature is frequently asked for by prospect customers.
*** Bug 1290049 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The basic functionality is already present in the existing builds.
A patch to enhance the usability of snapshots via the shadow_copy2
module is currently under review.
The feature patch is merged. With this the basic functionality of shadow-copy should be working. Therefore moving this bug to ON_QA. Any bugs in the feature can be tracked separately.
Basic functionality works fine.
