Cygwin OCFS support (or lack of)
Thu Feb 7 17:52:00 GMT 2008
Hi all .
I wish to report a problem concerning Cygwin OCFS support.
I have installed Oracle Clusterware on 2 windows 2003 machined
connected to a shared storage .
Using that configuration I am protecting a single instance Oracle 11g Database .
I use a great deal of Cygwin based scripts to maintain / backup /
monitor my database and attempted to implement my procedures in the
Clusterware solution .
I have discovered that there are serious problems using Cygwin on OCFS
The first thing I noticed was the bash AutoComplete does not work .
The reason is that I am not able to list any content of any directory
under OCFS .
This is defiantly not a permissions problem .
I am able to perform any action if I know the complete path of
everything (read write and edit files) but I am completely "blind"
Here is a small example
In my configuration C:\ and D:\ are local NTFS filesystem and P:\ is a
shared OCFS filesystem (Shared as in located on the shared storage
This is the output of df

Now ls on an OCFS volume (P)
$ ls /cygdrive/p
It is not a mistake - the output is empty
Now the output of dir on P:\
Volume in drive P is DISK-P
Volume Serial Number is FFFF-FFFF
Directory of P:\

If I cd into a directory that I know exists I succeed
For example :
$ cd /cygdrive/p/ora_exp
Pwd will show my correct location :
But again ls will not return any responces :
All scripts that parse input from stdin come out blank
I have found No hits on Oracle or on cygwin
Has anyone encountered the issue ?
Can anyone follow up ?
