Description Frank Schäfer 2015-02-25 15:58:57 UTC
"posix: Maps POSIX FS semantics to NT semantics" is listed two times in the documentation of the "ntvfs handler" configuration parameter.

I'm not familiar with this paramter, but there seems to be a "cifsposix", too, which isn't documented yet. So I assume one of these two entries should be changed to / replaced by a proper description of "cifsposix".
Comment 1 Frank Schäfer 2015-02-25 16:02:01 UTC
Btw: there is a small typo in source4/ntvfs/cifs_posix_cli/README:
	nfvfs handler = cifsposix
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2019-06-12 15:24:05 UTC
Seems to have been fixed as of now in master.  Either way this parameter is only for the developer-only NTVFS file server.
