Hi all,

I was wondering why here :

https://www.mail-archive.com/gpfsug-discuss@gpfsug.org/msg00121.html

...and several other forums, wikis, etc it's recommended to use :

unix extensions = no

for samba setups with GPFS? This disables the ability for linux/unix samba
clients to see the actual mode bits on files.

Thanks,
Sabuj
