And it is preferred to backup XFS with xfsdump.
If you don't use a filesystem that understands ACLs, then Samba maintains all =
the ACL info in a common file.
You as the administrator are responsible for creating a backup mechanism that =
captures the Samba ACL info.
That is easy if you are happy with doing a full share backup/restore, but if =
you want to be able to do individual file saves/restores, then you have to have =
some way of saving/restoring the ACL data on a file by file basis.

This was the original need, but from what I understand smbmount does not handle =
ACLs, so there is no way to get the remote ACL info. and back it up.
>> I think XFSdump does on XFS filesystems...but I could be wrong.
