Dear all,

I try to establish the vfs object glusterfs.
My settings samba 4.1.4 share definition:

comment=gluster test
vfs objects=glusterfs
glusterfs:volume= sambacluster
glusterfs:volfile_server =
read only=no
posix locking =NO

Mount gluster in fstab:   /mnt/glusterfs     glusterfs
defaults,acl,__netdev  0  0

Under /dev/sdb1: mkfs.xfs -i size=512 /dev/sdb1  
/dev/sdb1   /raid5hs   xfs defaults   1 2

[root at s4master ~]# gluster volume info

Volume Name: sambacluster
Type: Replicate
Volume ID: 4fd0da03-8579-47cc-926b-d7577dac56cf
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 1 x 2 = 2
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: s4master:/raid5hs/glusterfs/samba
Brick2: s4slave:/raid5hs/glusterfs/samba
Options Reconfigured:
performance.quick-read: on
network.ping-timeout: 5
performance.stat-prefetch: off

Samba is reporting to load the vol:

Feb  7 08:20:52 s4master GlusterFS[6867]: [2014/02/07 08:20:52.455982,  0]
Feb  7 08:20:52 s4master GlusterFS[6867]:   sambacluster: Initialized volume
from server

But when I try to write Office Files and txt Files from a win client to the
share there is an error "the file:xxxxx could not be created, System could
not find the file". But after a refresh the file was generated anyway.
This files cannot be changed but deleted anyway.
Directories can be generated without this issue!?

Can you give me a hint to make things work? Or is the plugin not working at
this state?
