Description Ken Kosmowski 2017-09-13 18:35:59 UTC

There is a problem with File.SetLastWriteTime when using it on mounted volume which uses DNS Service Discovery (dns-sd).

I mounted a share with the following path to "/Volumes/C":
Everything is fine and I can call File.SetLastWriteTime on this path and it works like expected.

Mounting the same share with a dns-sd path results in a System.IO.IOException "Invalid parameter".
The path is:

As you can see, the only difference between these paths is the dns-sd part "._smb._tcp.local".
