Reparse Points Current Status


To implement SMB2 unix extensions, smbd needs to implement ntfs reparse points to present symlinks, sockets and other special files to clients. This talk will present an overview of what reparse points are at their core and where Samba stands to implement them. Also, it will highlight the current status of the Linux kernel SMB client implementation regarding reparse points and special files over SMB2.
