Xsan: Avoid using native extended attributes with StorNext clients
If you connect StorNext clients to an Xsan volume, avoid enabling native extended attributes. StorNext clients may not preserve extended attributes when copying or moving files on the SAN volume.

When creating a new Xsan volume that will be used with Xsan and StorNext clients, click the Advanced Settings button and deselect the Extended Attributes checkbox.
Important: You can't disable extended attributes after the volume is created.
Note: You can enable extended attributes for an existing volume, but once enabled they cannot be disabled.
