Sounds like you could have benefited from the work-around mentioned in
my second link,


Because your actual file server platform was Linux, the file server
process must have been SAMBA (like the case in the link), and the
config tweaks mentioned there were possible.

Right: because SAMBA does a good job of pretending to be Windows.

That may be were we're stuck, too, since the SAMBA work-around can't
be directly applied to a Windows server implementation (doesn't have
the same configuration files ... indeed, doesn't configure with
_files_ at all!).
