For other data I will have a look tomorrow, but

normal ad users or admins it is all the same, just add (in our

\\server\homes points to the dataset mounted at /export/data/users/
- your smbautohome file
# cat /etc/smbautohome

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?

Sorry maybe I missunderstood you, but what should I relocate where, wtf?
I touched eigther the autohome nor the dataset or share configuration
since 6 month. And for sure I've not moved around the 1/2 T of data.

I'm not asking you to relocate anything, I was trying to guess
at how you had configured your system.

Autohomes provides a share to personal data for each user personal.
the homes share exports unconditionally all dirs in /export/data/users,
for administrational or foreign access purposes.

If a user opens his personal files with \\server\username there are no
previous versions found.

If the same user on the same client now just inserts a \homes (leads to
\\server\homes\username) he immediatly gets all previous versions fine.

if he removes \homes from path and looks in preference for previous
versions they are gone. But he still has the exactly same actual data.
If he deletes a file it looks lost here, adding \homes it is also gone,
but previous versions are now there and allowing to easily restore that
file and yes then it is also back when using the autohome-share.

So this is a static/predefined share versus smbautohome share issue
rather than a root directory versus subdirectory issue?

So what scenario, so what should i move when?
I would guess that osol looks in shareroot for .zfs, then it would find
it using \\server\homes but not when using \\server\username as those
are no separate datasets.

I'd prefer to analyze data rather than continue guessing.


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.
