is likely to be implicated in these inconsistencies.
I’ve a number of SMB volumes mounted. One in every of them was a neighborhood quantity however has now been copied to a Mac mini server and I’ve it regionally mounted:
The opposite two, regionally mounted SMB volumes, have been freshly created on the server.
Whereas logged in on the Mac mini server I’ve eliminated the highlight listing and re-enable highlight on two volumes:

This analysis began after I tried to take away the native highlight cache utilizing
mdutil -p on one of many mounted volumes after making a brand new Highlight database on the server. When my instructions failed I started to examine every quantity and see the variations.
