Dear list,

Setup is: Solaris 11 ZFS + Samba 3.5.10

What is the recommended way nowadays of performing strict permissions
mapping between Samba and Windows NT 6.1 ?
And a more broader question: is it desirable ?

As we know ZFS has native NFSv4 ACL's and this would mean that permissions
applied on Windows side should have an exact match
on the ZFS side.

Is it acl_xattr module still needed ?

 vfs objects=acl_xattr

By the way: acl_xattr is production ready now if I am not mistaken ?
