I'm preparing a update from a heterogen environment with the services OpenLDAP, 
Kerberos, Bind9, Samba 3.6 (NT-Domain), NFS4 to a Samba4 AD. I'm setting up a test 
environment with a separate DC and a file server. 
There are some questions about the file server which is a debian file server with some TB 
of data right now.

The first question is, what to do with the existing TB of data (user homes, global exports, 
a.s.o.) only with POXIS ACLs (owner,group,others). Do I have to set the more complex 
Windows ACLs for every folder or file to get at least the same access rights as before?

The second question is, if it is possible to export the same file system/folders as an 
NFS4 export and a Samba4 share or if there are problems concering the ACLs?

Viele Grüße
