Description Phil Anderson 2011-01-16 04:25:05 UTC
smbd/dosmode.c:255(get_ea_dos_attribute)
get_ea_dos_attributes: Cannot get attribute from EA on file <filename>: Error = Operation not supported

Sorry - accidentally submitted before I typed the message.

When ea support = yes and follow symlinks = yes, symlinks won't be followed, with the following error logged:
smbd/dosmode.c:255(get_ea_dos_attribute)
get_ea_dos_attributes: Cannot get attribute from EA on file <filename>: Error =
Operation not supported

I tried setting and retrieving ACLs manually with setfacl/getfacl on the simlink it's self, as well as the destination, and it seemed to work, so I'm not sure why samba isn't working.
