    We have a legacy application on OpenVMS (yes, really)  and they are having problems accessing an NFS server we are providing (specifically, Spectrum Scale with NFS-ganesha). The issue relates to ADFs. Specifically, they are saying they are unable to create them and are asking us to configure the server to allow them. From our perspective, this appears to be a regular file. I did find one in their directory tree and see that it is a dot file and contains some special characters. Does anyone have any pointers? I'm presently waiting on a *clearly* documented error message from them.
