Hi again,

Just an update, my production servers switched to work with this settings
for several days now, and all seems OK.
I didn't found any reason why not using this this setting ("vfs objects =
fileid") while working with gpfs and posix acl's so I'll keep it that way.
If I notice problems, I'll update....I hope not.
