The VFS has changed significantly between 3.5 and 4.1. I
would suggest that you go through the VFS operations and
adapt them accordingly. I'm sorry, but we don't provide VFS
compatibility between major revisions of smbd.

With best regards,

I am able to compile my vscan-vfs module source code with source3 of samba-3.5.4. Also the corresponding vscan-vfs module is working correctly. When I get the callback of filepath in my vscan-vfs module I scan that file for virus infection and accordingly take the action.

I have tried to compile my vscan-vfs module source code with source3 and spource4 of samba-4.1.0, But I am getting lot of errors. So kindly advice me about the procedure and changes to compile vfs-modulesource code with samba-4.1.0.
