  1. I have an Illumos NAS at home (OmniOS) as a VM.  Another VM is an Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS x64 VM.  On OmniOS I have a userdir (ZFS DataSet) that has 3 folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos).  Each of these folders is NFS shared to my Ubuntu VM as my user (same UID=1000).  That same OmniOS zfs dataset/userdir is shared via CIFS.  So as an example:


    OmniOS                                              Ubuntu                                      CIFS from OmniOS

    /tank/joltman/Documents          /home/joltman/Documents    \\\joltman\Documents


    I have btsync (1.3.92) on the Ubuntu headless server VM.  It shares out the /home/joltman/Documents to other btsync devices (my Windows 8.1 x64 Pro laptop).  I can successfully, add/change/remove a file on my laptop and the file will get pushed to the Ubuntu server and it's changed successfully.  Awesome!  However, if from another Windows machine, I push a file to \\\joltman\Documents\, my laptop will not update the file (even after 10 minutes).  If I restart the btsync daemon, the file gets updated.  If I login to the btsync webpage on Ubuntu, the file gets updated.  It doesn't seem to happen automatically.  I don't think this is a huge issue, but it's something I noticed.  It's most likely an issue because I'm pushing a file to the CIFS link (which runs through OmniOS) and not to a SMB share from the Ubuntu VM.  I'm just curious if others have had this issue and if there's anything I can do to solve it?  Thanks!

  2. I joined the forum just for this post.  I really want the btsync app to work in Illumos.  Specifically, I use OmniOS for home use.  I would love to have the ability to have btsync support my wife's userdir and my userdir.  I want her to be able to save docs to a folder on her laptop where ever she is, and it gets synced back home.  Please please please make a build for Illumos/OmniOS.  I'll be requesting open source as well in the OSS thread.  Thanks!
