TS3179: Xsan 2.2: Windows client unable to copy item from share point via SMB when native extended attributes are enabled

TS3179 /etc/smb.conf does not seem to exist in 10.7.5. How do we get SBM shares to work with Native extended attributes? Or at least configure SMB to hide ._ files without enabling NEA?

I've moved all of our PC file shares over to an Xserve running 10.7.5 (too old to run 10.8). However I'm getting complaints about all of the ._ files. So I found this article http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3791 stating that by enabling Native Extended Attributes the SAN will remove all of the ._ files and combine them into the main file. Awesome. Exactly what I want. Or maybe not... I then found this article http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3179 stating that "If native extended attributes have been implemented on an Xsan volume, Windows users connecting over SMB may receive a message stating that an item can't be copied from the share point because the item can't be found." And that the solution is to edit the /etc/smb.conf file to disable stream support. Well that's great except that /etc/smb.conf does not exist in 10.7.5.

 

Any advise?

 

Thanks,

 

Jason
