Hi Experts,

I am having issues with incrond IN_CREATE option. I am able to successfully monitor the directory created in a specific folder.

I have added an cifs NFS mount /mnt/DIR which is added to incrontab. Do you know why it is not able to monitor changes under /mnt/DIR?.


Thanks,

I don't think that you can use incrond to trigger on NFS or CIFS network shares. I believe that the events that are fired come from the local filesystem operations and in the case of a shared resource, there's no mechanism to trigger them when someone changes shared files on the server.
