The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6016
Alternate Data Streams / Extended Attributes seem to conflict
Last modified: 2009-01-21 08:59:10 UTC
Using Samba 3.2.7, if I enable vfs objects streams_xattr or streams_depot, DOS attributes stored in the user.DOSATTRIB EA don't seem to work any more (even attributes that were previously stored before enabling the streams module). If I remove the streams_xxx entry from vfs_objects, DOS attributes immediately start working again.
I can get debug level 10 logs if needed, but it appears to be very easy to reproduce.
My smb.conf contains the following, which testparm verifies:
ea support = 1
map archive = 0
map readonly = 0
map system = 0
store dos attributes = 1
Created attachment 3862 [details]
Patch applied to all branches. We were too aggressive about turning off ea support on getea error. We were doing it on ENOENT (oops :-).
The fix will be included in 3.2.8.
Closing out bug report.
Please re-open if it's still an issue.
Thanks for reporting!
