I am running Samba on ZFS without vfs_zfsacl, but with these zfs options:
- xattr=sa
- acltype=posixacl
- aclinherit=restricted

Samba is currenently 3.6.23-33.el6 from Scientific Linux, running as PDC.

Planning to replace this with 4.5 as AD-DC.

Does it fail only when ZFS is used as root filesystem, or for SYSVOL, or 
does it not even support ZFS just for shared files?
Not even with "zfs set acltype=posixacl pool/share"?
The root filesystem is ext4.
