Networker backing up unchanged files with archive bit set on Linux client

In this discussion, the NSR_AVOID_ARCHIVE variable is discussed to prevent Networker from honouring the archive bit.

We observed, that Networker appears to backup unchanged files with the archive bit set on a Linux client (actually a Samba server), doing incremental backups.

The client OS type is clearly configured / recognized as Linux. Why should Networker bother about the archive bits on a Linux platform at all?

Server version is 8.2 on Linux, client version is still 7.6, also Linux OS.

Until today, we did not set the NSR_AVOID_ARCHIVE variable.

Thanks and regards, Thomas
