Some Windows applications cannot open a file to write to it after a UNIX application gives it group or world write permissions by means of Server for NFS.
To enforce strict UNIX semantics, Server for NFS enables the write extended attributes permission for only the owner.
The Windows write permission requires write extended attributes to be enabled. A Windows application does not successfully open the file if it requires the general write permission (instead of requiring just the write data permission).
