HNAS - Prevent the creation of files that end or begin with a "space"

Question asked by Sam Marrocco on Oct 25, 2017

Hi there.  We have a Hitachi HNAS 3080-G2 that has been giving us some problems.

 

The scenario: Linux users (and some automatic Linux programs) sometimes create files on CIFS shares that begin or end in a "space"  (i.e. " 012345.pdf" or "012345.pdf ")

 

The problem: Windows users on these same shares (through SMB) cannot delete these files, since Windows doesn't know how to deal with a leading or trailing space in file names.

 

Ideally, we would like the HNAS to disallow the creation of files with these names.  Is there any way to accomplish this?  Thanks.
