We have Win7 desktops (with no Novell Client --> everything is being ****graded to AD/M$ backend). In the interimme they are configured to access CIFS shares on HOST2 (sles10sp2 and oes2sp3_64). We are having problems with some directories - only a fraction of the 800-odd objects in a given directory are visible. We have copied the file system to another CIFS share on HOST1 with the same OS versions, the same CIFS conf and at the same directory depth and all files/directories are visible.

Log entries in /var/log/messages throw this: HOST2 CIFS: WARNING: CODIR: [GetEntryFromDirCache]Could not locate pathbase, 256 ... but so far I am unable to find to what this refers. Any assistance appreciated. Thanks.
