in thread -s test option returns differently in some cases

Hi hdb, Actually, it is exactly the same file since it is located on a nfs directory. In the full script, I am now printing the value if a -e test returns true before going to the test that breaks and the path is exactly the same (which is expected).

    ...and the accounts on both machines have identical permissions and the NFS mounts are made in identical fashion i.e. with identical options, on the same mount point - each of which has identical permissions down to the mount point ?

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

      It is the same user on both machines, and same NFS area. Only the OS is different.

      Mount point in the same. Rights are the same. I just don't know how the NFS is mounted, that's all. I assume it is the same on both OS (IT topic, not mine so I bet it is a common solution).

        Run the mount command on both machines - in the output, amongst all the mounted fileystems, you'll see the mount point listed along with the options used when the mount is/was made.

        It's probably also worthwhile to check that the uid and gid (c/w user and group names) are the same on both machines.

        A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
