Are Samba and NFSd running on the same server, exporting the same data?
That is what is expected to work. See 'kernel oplocks' (the default of
which will change for 4.0) to allow NFS and Samba to break each other's
What Simo cautions about is where an NFS server (say a NAS server)
exports to some direct NFS clients, and then a 'proxy' Samba server is
an NFS client and a Samba server for Windows clients. This 'proxy'
setup is considered dangerous.
