Hi -

I was wondering if any of you may be able to point me in the right direction.

I am in the process of designing a fairly large fileserver solution in an MS Active directory environment.

I have setup and tested ctdb samba, however, after several discussions with a couple of my colleagues, i am now considering a more vanilla flavour of samba.  The key features the solution requires are:

•	CIFS protocol (with the best ntfs ACL support possible)
•	GPFS (for many terabytes of data)
•	HSM (specifically TSM)

1.  Does the samba version provided in the RHEL5 distro support migrated files (TSM HSM) and GPFS?
2.  Do the latest releases of samba (source code) support my requirements?
     - and, what options should be included when compiling from source?

3.  Or should i just stick with CTDB samba?

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated

Best Regards
