I'm having an issues with ufsd mounting a USB hard drive, then sharing it with SAMBA and retaining the DOS attributes when accessed via Windows system. The mount command I'm using is: mount -t ufsd -o noatime,sparse,nls=utf8,force,acl,user_xattr (dev) (mnt point) I've modified my smb.conf file to include the following: ea support = yes store dos attributes = yes map readonly = no map archive = no map system = no The issue is when I connect to the host with a windows client, and try to change the DOS attributes, they aren't. Example from a windows machine: Z:\>attrib +h +s +r +a test.txt Z:\>attrib test.txt Z:\test.txt So, how can I get the USFD driver to maintain/update DOS attributes? P.S. Sorry but I am using this on a Linux system. But I can't find a sub forum for Linux. MAC is "Unix" so I thought I would try here.
