- Subject: touch failing on network share
I have a network share set up on my
OS/2 box using HPFS. On that share,
I have directory: cygmanaged, and under that, I have
a directory tmp2.
So, I can mount this directory as:
mount --system --binary -omanaged z:/cygmanaged/tmp2 /tmp2,
and it looks like everything is fine.
But, when I try to 'touch' any file/directory on that mount, I get this
error: touch: setting times of `cygwin-equivs/': Permission denied
However, I can vi/edit/rm/mv or do just about anything else that I
want to the file. I just can't seem to do a touch on it.
Does anyone have any insight into touch as to what it is doing that might
be causing the permissions problem?
I just tested this on the raw share (/cygdrive/z/foo) and it still fails. So,
it is not a managed mount problem/issue, but something deeper.
