vfs_acl_xattr - Save NTFS-ACLs in Extended Attributes (EAs)


vfs objects = acl_xattrg


This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

The vfs_acl_xattr VFS module stores NTFS Access Control Lists (ACLs) in Extended Attributes (EAs). This enables the full mapping of Windows ACLs on Samba servers.

The ACLs are stored in the Extended Attribute security.NTACL of a file or directory. This Attribute is not listed by getfattr -d filename. To show the current value, the name of the EA must be specified (e.g. getfattr -n security.NTACL filename).

Please note that this module is experimental!

This module is stackable.


There are no options for vfs_acl_xattrg.


The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
