You need to provide more information. Much more of your smb.conf, what 
OS, Samba, and GPFS, along with your GPFS config.

Have you tested that the DOS attributes are correctly being stored in 
the GPFS file system?

It explicitly does work. The issues are all around Office trying to 
preserve ACL's which the vast majority of software does not.

Are you running with NFSv4 ACL's *ONLY* on GPFS? Using Posix or Posix 
and NFSv4 together is likely to lead to problems.
