Boths CIFS and NFS shares
Windows 7 Enterprise clients
And an 8 year old process that has not changed
User SSH's into a Linux host, creates a folder on a mount to //netapp/custom/jobs.. lets say teh new folder is widgets. So it's //netapp/custom/jobs/widgets or locally /mnt/custom/jobs/widgets
Inside widgets a number of files are written.
User returns to Windows where he has a CIFs share to the Custom/Jobs folder where he cannot see the new Widgets subfolder. Multiple windows users cannot see it, however I (IT) can see Widgets via other Linux hosts.
Checking the permissions via ls -l the new folder has identical perms to every other folder so it's not 'hidden'.
What could be causing this? It has happened randomly for the past few years.
