Thread: Copying files TIMESTAMP wrong

    Default Copying files TIMESTAMP wrong

    Hi all,
    The system
    New install of 13.1, also installed Samba and Nettatalk. for file sharing on Windows and Macintosh network.
    Added users account for both samba and MAC.

    Users can connect from both with no problem.

    Problem:
    From a MAC mounted volume, the user copy's files from one folder to another, these files are Adobe PS and adobe PDF files.
    The time stamp on both files " Before " copying is the same.
    However , after copying to the needed folder, the time stamp ONLY on the Adobe PS , file changes by 6 hours.
    Some PS, files go 6 hours ahead other 6 hours behind.

    Please advise,
    Thanks

    Dave M

    The symptoms indicate a problem between UTC and local time for the clocks on the
    machines.

    all computer times are correct,
    this only happens to the Adobe PS file not the PDF, copying files directly on the server folders ( via MAC mounted Volume ) makes no sense to me

    It still sounds like what lwfinger suggested:

    The time displayed in your desktop and on your monitor might be correct local time, but the time in the motherboard clock (in the BIOS) might be different. Check that on both machines.

    I don't fully understand.

    The files reside physically on a MAC computer, and they are shared on
    the network via Samba and Nettatalk to Windows and Linux Machines. And
    you copy the files from where to where?

    If that is not so, please explain again.

    Then you copy the file from ?? to ?? locally?? or over the network??
    using what software?? And then you display the timestamp on what machine
    ?? using what software ??

    And then you observe that the adobe PS file have a wrong timestamp, but
    not the PDF files.


    Too many unknowns.

    Sorry , Been away for a long weekend.
    To Clarify,
    1. BIOS date and desktop date correct on all computers.
    2. ALL files reside on the SuSe 13.1 server, and are shared there by Samba and Netatalk.
    3. The shared folder is mounted on a MAC , as a " Volume " .
    4. In the shared volume are multiple other folders , where the users move files from folder to folder.
    5. Only once files are moved, the timestamp changes , only on Adobe PS and EPS files, not PDF ?

    This is still not clear, and you have not put your location/timezone into your profille.
    Can you please post the output of the date and hwclock commands on both the openSUSE and OSX machines.
    E.g.
    Code:
    giulia:~ # hwclock --utc --test  ;date
    Tue Apr 22 17:15:59 2014  -0.750743 seconds
    Tue Apr 22 17:15:59 BST 2014
    giulia:~ #
    Does your smb.conf contain lines like:
    dos filetimes = True
    time server = True

    or run a logon script with a "NET TIME" command?
