The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1854
unix extensions can not be disabled client side
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:41:54 UTC
When I work on a linux kernel with samba unix-extensions support compiled in,
and the server supports it, I have no way to disable unix-extensions client-side
when mounting a share off that server.
"echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled"
works for cifs vfs
For older smbfs, I don't mind taking a patch forward, but it doesn't seem worth
the trouble since the cifs vfs can now replace it for most usage scenarios and
probably better to focus on any adding to cifs vfs the few remaining misc
features that are only in smbfs.
so it can be closed
