I am trying to understand the benefit of the patch you provided. Ideally,
I would expect that the "special:owner@" entry in gpfs will be translated
into "CREATOR OWNER" when querying permissions using Windows, and
vice-versa. If I understand correctly (based on what you have written and
some tests I've done with the patch). The behavior I've seen, when using
the patch, is that adding "CREATOR OWNER" permission through the windows
explorer is translated into "special:owner@" on gpfs and behaves
accordingly, but still appears as user ACE in windows explorer (although
subfolders or files with different owner will receive permissions to the
actual owner). The behavior before the patch seems more unpredictable.
Is this is the expected behavior with the patch? If so, is there a plan to
improve the behavior so that full translation of "CREATOR OWNER" to
"special:owner" will be done?
