NFS volume, shared out over NCP. Inconsistencies.

I have SLES server, running OES. This server mounts an ext3 NFS volume from another server, and then shares that volume out via NCP to windows users.

When the ncp volume was first setup (using ncpcon) permissions were not perfect. Some of the files which were supposed to be accessible via NCP were not. Some directories were completely missing from the ncp share.

I later corrected these permissions, these files are now accessible. However, when you browse the volume via NCP, you still do not see the previously inaccessible folders. If i browse to them with an absolute path, they work, and then afterward they show up as you;d expect them to when browsing the folders.

What i'd like to do, is refresh this volume globally, so that i'm sure that no folders are still hidden, that shouldn't be.

Is there an easy way to accomplish this?
