Dear list,

I am trying to make a symlink immutable with chattr, however the command
seems to follow the link, which point to a NFS Mount.
Setting xattr works on symlink btw, which is useful.
More data below
Any ideas ?

Best Regards

Heres the situation from my machine's view:
/data > ls -l bin
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 48 Aug  2 15:53 bin -> /archive/l01abnfs07/bin

/data> xfs_io  -c "chattr +i" bin
xfs_io: specified file ["bin"] is not on an XFS filesystem

~ > xfs_io -V
xfs_io version 2.8.4

~ > cat /etc/SuSE-release
