I met an issue to create ADS on a volume to store meta info.
A Samba server on Ubuntu is configured as follows to provide a share for
OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS.
SAMBA: Version 4.1.6-Ubuntu
The policy is as follows,
path = /home/daniel/Public/sharefolder1
read only = no
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
vfs objects = streams_xattr
On Win7 64bit client, I opened a console to test and got the following
1. File data stream can be created.
echo "sdfsdfc' > \\Server\Share\file:MetaInfo
Where Server is the computer name of the Ubuntu machine; file is an
existing file name..
The command succeeds.
2. Folder data stream can be created .
echo "sdfds" > \\Server\Share\fold\:MetaInfo
Where fold is an existing directory name.
It succeeds as well.
3. Volume data stream cannot be created.
echo "dfvddfv" > \\Server\Share\:MetaInfo
It fails with an error message: The system cannot find the file
I tested on a network folder shared by windows machine, the volume
data stream can be created.
Is this the limitation of Linux Samba share?
Could anybody help me with this?
