Climbing up the walls because Finder refuses to update remote files and folders on an SMB share? Here's your salvation.
After spending hours to find a fix or workaround for Samba shares not updating remotely renamed files and folders in Finder, I finally found it.
As admin, create a file named
sudo vi /etc/nsmb.conf
Put the following inside:
Save. Reboot. Done.
For those inclined to know more may want to read up on Bug 11717. Apparently it's a known problem but according to that discussion's Ralf Böhme:
"So as long as nobody invests some serious time into this area this won't change."
So, the above workaround appears to be your best bet for now.
