Samba and inotify script uid greater than 100000


Mar 27, 2022
Hi there,
I have a script running that checks if file have a uid or gid grater than 100000.
If it is the case, I substract 100000 from it.

I do this because I noticed that files comming from a LXC have their uid above 100000.
Inotify seemt to register on the path /mnt/QData which is a zfs dataset
This is also a share in my /etc/samba/smb.conf samba. The share is accessible to windows clients a linux clients.
However when I try from within a LXC share and copy files into this share. They arrive but werent registered, and thus not altered from 100033 to 33.

Is there a mechanism already in Proxmox to detect file changes even comming true a samba share?

Kind regards
