Renaming files the old files name coming back after cron job running

Expected behaviour

renamed files should not appears with old name after cron job running

Actual behaviour

When user rebname files after the cron job the old file name is back and to fix it I should run console.php files:scan --all

Steps to reproduce

  1. Rename file(s) with Mac 2.3.4 client
  2. Run cronjob (owncloud 10.0.4)

Server configuration

Operating system:
Synology Linux DiskStation 3.10.102

Web server:
Apache 2.2

Mysql 5.5

PHP version:

ownCloud version:

Storage backend (external storage):

Client configuration

Client version: 2.3.4

Operating system: Mac High Sierra

OS language:

Qt version used by client package (Linux only, see also Settings dialog):

Client package (From ownCloud or distro) (Linux only):

Installation path of client:


Please use Gist ( or a similar code paster for longer

Template for output < 10 lines

  1. Client logfile: Output of owncloud --logwindow or owncloud --logfile log.txt
    (On Windows using cmd.exe, you might need to first cd into the ownCloud directory)
    (See also )

  2. Web server error log:

  3. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):

Logs, or it didn't happen.

There should be an error happening that prevents the rename in the backend. Although the metadata is updated, since the rename didn't happen in the backend, the file appears again in the next files:scan.
Connection problems can also be a cause for this issue since the rename request might not reach the ownCloud server.

That's the general view of what could be happening, but without logs it isn't possible to know if this is really true.
