Description Michael Arlt 2008-01-24 06:29:34 UTC
If we activate "nt acl support" the user is able to change acls.
Additionally we can see the owner/group of the file on Windows

Changing acls can be disabled on Linux using the mount-option "noacl" on most filesystems.

We don't want to have acls but we want to see the owner/group information on Windows. On Solaris it is not possible to disable acls if we use the special filesystem "sam-fs". This could be an issue on all UX-platforms.

So a good solution would be to have a new option "nt user support" which shows Windows the users but does not allow to change acls or ignores changing of acls even if the filesystem supports it.

It would be perfect if we could get a patch for 3.0.26a, too, because we are stuck to this version due to sun.

Regards
Michael

- compiled without acl-support
- nt acl support = yes # in smb.conf
results in the desired feature: user is shown under windows and client can "change " acls but nothing happens
