FAQ: Added extended attributes setup

Samba Server and Client FAQ

This page should become a collection of tips and tricks around the setup and operation of the Samba Server and Client for eComStation and OS/2.


Q: Is the Samba Server for eCS (OS/2) able to store OS/2 extended attributes properly?

A: Yes. Recent Samba builds can do that nicely. You have to add the following statement to your smb.conf in order to enable extended attributes:

[global]
   ...
   ea support = Yes
   ...

Note: Samba Server builds older than 2007-02-26 had problems with Extended Attributes (EAs), both with clients connected with IBM LAN Requester and with clients connected with the older Samba 3.0.9 plugins for Netdrive.
