Thanks for the reply. The share where folders are currently being
redirected are hosted on a Samba 4.1.7 AD DC. I would like to rsync a
copy to another Samba 4.1.7 AD DC. I will move this to a member server
down the road at some point. With that being said. I do not have "vfs
objects = acl_xattr" in my global or on the share. I verified using
"/samba-tool testparm -v" to see if it was a default option. A few
1. Do I need to use " vfs objects = acl_xattr" if the share is on a AD
DC or is this only applicable on member servers?
2. Does "vfs objects = acl_xattr" need to be on the source, destination
or both shares?
