Description Clemens Schwaighofer 2004-12-06 01:26:19 UTC
I have four boxes.
- Debian/testing on XFS
- Debian/unstable on ext3
- Gentoo/stable on XFS
- Redhat 9.0 with samba 3.0.7 on ext3

I access to this box from
- Windows 2000 SP4 (ja)
- Windows XP Pro SP 2 (en)
- Windows XP Pro SP 1 (en)

I can set the read-only flag only on the samba boxes with ext3, I can't do that
when the samba runs on an xfs box. then I get an "Access denied" error.

But, when I set the file to u-w, then windows sees it (on all boxes), but again,
only the samba on ext3 can change the attribut back again.

I have no set dos attributes turned on, or ea attributes, etc. xfs is mounted
with quota and so is ext3.

this would have to be an xfs bug.  we don't distinguish 
between file systems.

It works on XFS with

map archive = no
map system = no
map hidden = no
store dos attributes = yes

# setfattr -n user.DOSATTRIB -v "0x20" test
# getfattr -d -e hex test
file: test

# ls -l test
-rw-rw-r--  1 root group 0 2006-05-10 18:00 test

# smbclient //FILESERVER/test -U test%test
> ls

With "0x20", the ARCHIVE attribut is at ON by default.

With "0x307830", the ARCHIVE attribut is at OFF by default.
