Hi all,

we still have an access problem with samba 3.4.3 on AIX 5300-10-01-0921, mounting a GPFS filesystem. The error started to appear a few weeks ago when we were still on 3.4.1. We do not have this problem on 3.0.26a, but we need to go to 3.4.3 due to Windows Vista and Windows 7 requirements.

The upgrade to 3.4.3 did not solve our problem. 

Here is a sample error:

[2009/11/17 10:55:54,  1] smbd/service.c:1047(make_connection_snum) ( connect to service temme$ initially as user temme (uid=15213, gid=10513) (pid 217140)
[2009/11/17 11:22:51,  1] smbd/dosmode.c:213(get_ea_dos_attribute)
  get_ea_dos_attributes: Cannot get attribute from EA on file .: Error = Function not implemented

There is a bug open (#6775) that looks somewhat like our problem.

In our smb.conf we set the following parameter, but this did not help:
# problem with DOS attributes and UNIX permissions
# 20091105, VA
ea support = yes
store dos attributes = Yes
map archive = No
map hidden = No
map system = No
map readonly = No

Please let me know if you need more information. Do we need to open a new bu report? Shall we add a debug level 10 log and our smb.conf tot he bug ticket?
