10.6: Fix Samba write access from OS X to Linux servers
Authored by: cyberdave on Apr 07, '10 08:08:18PM

I hit this problem the other day after upgrading to 10.6.3.

I did a little bit of digging and discovered that it's apparently due to extended attributes on the files.

I was trying to copy some dmg images to my file server (Ubuntu 9.10, Samba 3.4.0) and it wouldn't work. If I tried to copy them via 'cp', I'd get an error about extended attributes.

I used 'xattr' on the affected files at the command line to remove all the extended attributes, and after that I was able to copy the files to my file server without a problem.

I thought maybe this hint would also fix the issue, but I didn't have a chance to test that before this hint about unix extensions came along (which works great, btw).
