Hi mates,


We have two BlueArc Titan 3200 (Hitachi  HNAS3200) NAS heads which are sharing the users homes both through CIFS  and NFS. Our users are not used to see the folders starting with dot  (i.e. ".folder") which are generally hidden when mounting though NFS.


We used to serve these folders using samba and we were using this default option to automatically hide those folders:

Default: hide dot files = yes


I've  been going through the documentation and CLI options but have not found  a way to get such behavior when serving CIFS from the Titans 3200.



Has any of you found the solution for getting those dot files files hidden when sharing with CIFS?


Thanks for your help
