Well, the volume information looks exactly as usual for a remote Samba
The problem is, that your Samba version apparently screws up the inode
information and we have re-enabled using the inode numbers sent from
remote file systems which are supposed to be capable of that. For this
we use the HAS_PERSISTENT_ACLS property.
What Samba version is your Mac OS X using? I'm using 3.0.20a for which
the inode information is useable. Is Samba a part of the OS packages or
did you install it from an external source? Is it a rather old one?
Can you upgrade? The problem is that there's no way for us to distinguish
between a newer and an older version of Samba. I would rather not lose
the inode information when available.
