>> According the the release notes of Samba 4.12.0, the default setting of nfs4:acedup has been changed to 'merge' (see: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_4.12_Features_added/changed#smb.conf_changes <https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_4.12_Features_added/changed#smb.conf_changes>).
>> However, the manpage on https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/current/man-html/vfs_zfsacl.8.html <https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/current/man-html/vfs_zfsacl.8.html> tells me that the default setting is 'dontcare'. The manpage is valid for Samba 4.13.3, according to the text in the 'VERSION' section.
>> What to believe? The manpage or the release notes?

> You need to believe the release notes, the default has changed to 'merge'. The manpage needs updating.

Thanks Rowland. I hope the manpage is going to be updated soon?

Is there a CLI way to show what the default settings of modules are? testparm -v doesn't show default settings for modules.
