Operating Systems AIX NFS mount from windows NAS with NFS server, have hidden folder on UNIX

The problem was different from the link you included.

I had full access from AIX .. Originally i did a tar ball from an ext4 filesystem over to the storage (nfs), so all rights and user permissions were correct, that is, on visible folders. And where folders where hidden i had no problems creating my own, and since i could rename a hidden status'd folder to a ".folder" and list it with "ls -la" it was strange.

But,
I watch it closely the next days but it looks like the systems got in sync and some cache or so fixed my hidden folders , so im happy now.
There was a lot of smal 100KB files there, and 30GB of them, so maybe just a slow windows NFS system, to update its database of stored files.

I will see what we can do.

I am considering to resize the disks on the windows vm, and create a linux vm, and mount disk on it and share it from linux now Smilie
I hope this should limit the number of failures if they continue.

slight off topic but has anyone heard if microsoft is stopping support for NFS? my boss keeps pushing us to find something different because he says they will not support NFS anymore but I cant seem to find that info anywhere.
