are the attribute requests analogous to doing an lsattr on a file?
or are they attributes like file size, last mod date, etc..
reason i ask is i didn't think lsattr even applies for NFS.
when i try to do an lsattr on file on the nas i get:
"lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on spa.log"

so which exact "attributes" are being looked at on these
NFS mounted files?

thnx for the help!
