[Samba] Cannoi delete files: "the mounted file system does not suppor

Hi all,

I'm having what seems like a strange problem, I hope I'm not missing
something obvious, any help will be appreciated.

When trying to delete files on a Samba share, I get the message "Cannot
delete [file]: The mounted file system does not support extended
attributes."

What is strange is that it depends on weird conditions:
in one directory, if I create a file (right click - New text document")
with a name more than 16 characters, it can't be deleted, with that message.
If it is less that 16 characters (renamed or created that way), it can
be deleted.

I tried created a serie of nested "test" directories, with a single "a"
file in them.

This one can be deleted:
\machineSTATtesttesta

This one cannot:
\machineSTATtesttesttesta

Even stranger:
if I reight-click on those files, and go in the "Security tab", their
permissions look identical (even the special ones).
But if I click on Everyone/"Modify" for the file that I just couldn't
delete, I now can delete it.
If I immediately recreate the same file, it can be deleted.
If I wait a few minutes, then it can't be deleted, unless I check the
security permission again.

Now, the catch: this is Samba 2.0.9, running on HP-UX 11i.
The clients are Windows 2000 SP4 w/ patches.

I know this is an old version of Samba, but it's been working,
litterally, for years, and it's not easy to update it.
The problem only appeared last week.

If someone has a workaround for that version of Samba, it'll be welcome.
If is a known bug or limitation of that version, it'll be welcome as
well to have it pointed out. I had a look at the change log without
success.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Laurent

To answer myself:

 From what I understood, it seems this is a Samba bug in version 2.0.x,
that was triggered by a recent Windows patch. There was a slight change
in Windows behaviour when deleting files.

As for me, the problem was fixed by going to HP's package of Samba
2.2.12, which is the most recent for HP-UX 11.00 (HP-UX CIFS Server
http://www.hp.com/products1/unix/operating...000/index.html)

After that change, the system went out of available file locks. Somehow,
more seem to be used after that update (I'm not sure why, and it's not a
bug AFAIK). We had to increase HP-UX's NFLOCK value, and it's now
running fine.

HTH,

Laurent
