Samba shares on NFS mounted filesystem - bad idea

Today I implemented a strage server at a customer… the result wasn’t satisfying. I shared the files with NFS to the other servers. Samba shares of NFS mounted filesystems are NOT recommendable! It makes Outlook fuck up if you have your pst files on a samba share and the finacial system C5 can only have one user logged in because NFS make some locks on files (at least I think that is the reason).

Anyways… just wanted to tell you all to test twice (or some more) before you do something like that. I have’t looked further into it, to see if it is possible to optimize on some settings.
