     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?
