Just wondered and might be different with member servers.

If you provide vfs objects does this turn off all the other defaults or is that all is needed for a member server.

> https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setup_and_configure_file_shares_with_Windows_ACLs
> Now I have added a new guide to the Wiki about the same topic, but using
> the classic way with POSIX ACLs and Samba share parameters:
> https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setup_and_configure_file_shares_with_POSIX_ACLs
> I think it's neccessary, because both ways exist and not all *nix admins

> Also it will be part of the 'Moving to Samba 4x' guide, I've planned.
> Because I think many admins still sit on 3x and won't upgrade, because
> the misbelief exists, that Samba 4 is AD/Windows ACLs/etc. stuff only.
> And because the end of 3.6 is comming soon, I want to provide more
> documentation to encourage people to move to the latest 4x version.
> Suggestions, topics, etc. are welcome. :-)
