I have a script running on Ubuntu 16 that is used to move text files from an NFS share to a CIFS share. As part of the process the CR/LF translation is undertaken to support consumption by a windows service that accesses the CIFS share. The Ubuntu console logs the following for each transfer:

CIFS VFS: src file seems to be from a different filesystem type

Is this a bad thing - should I be concerned? I am not really sure what it is telling me other than the obvious.

Appears to be a bug that was reported to Ubuntu's launchpad, titled: dmesg CIFS VFS: src file seems to be from a different filesystem type for every file i copy/move to shared folder.

I see no resolution for this at this point in time.

  • Thank you - the files seem to be translated / moved ok - so I will just put up with it for now.
