We have a zpool with a volume and in that volume we have a number of
directories which are dynamically shared via smbautohome.
e.g. zpool pstuds, volume a and directory a1234567.

The server is a member of an AD.
The directory name matches the local user account (local for setting
ACLs) which maps (idmap) to the AD user.

Works like a charm.

By the way, we needed to use a directory for the home space as
opposed to a volume since we have 50k users’ home directories.

Trouble is…I can’t see the snapshot directory or view
previous-versions whilst in the users’ home folder.

If I share the volume which the directory sits in then I can however
explore the UNC path
(\\server\pstuds_a\.zfs\snapshot\mhtest\a1234567) and see those files
which I have deleted.

The question is, should I be able to explore/previous-versions of the
snapshots when I’m in a directory of a volume or are snapshots only
visible from the root of the volume?

Thanks for taking the time to read this.


Same effect here, we have smbautohomes on \\server\username and as
unbrowseable share \\server\homes\username
\\server\homes is equal to dataset (\export\data(the pool)\users)

when browsing \\server\username the previous versions in properties
finds nothing
\\server\homes\username previous versions in properties works perfectly,
even for subdirectories and files

would be nice to know a workaround

To investigate, please provide:
- a network capture (wireshark) and 'ls -lVd' for the working scenario
- a network capture and 'ls -lVd' for the failing scenario
uhm it is the same scenario, the same files, the same data, just two
different shares?

Apparently it's not the same scenario to the software because on
your system one scenario works and one doesn't work.  If you're
not comfortable providing diagnostic data that's fine but we can't
investigate the problem without it.

- user details for users accessing the shares
normal ad users or admins it is all the same, just add (in our
structure) \homes between \\server\username and you get the previous
versions, use the autohome (\\server\username) and you have no previous
\\server\homes points to the dataset mounted at /export/data/users/
- your smbautohome file
# cat /etc/smbautohome
*       /export/data/users/&

This information is incomplete.  For example, should I assume that
you relocate the home directories and update all appropriate
configuration files, including /etc/smbautohome, for each scenario?

If you provide all the requested information for each scenario, we
can see what's going on instead of having to make educated guesses
based on partial descriptions.
