Share pool with Linux and from Linux back to other devices


Not really a DrivePool question but i wonder if somebody is doing something like that.

I really love DrivePool and none of the many Unix NAS distributions has what i want.
They all to RAID/ZFS and all this stuff...

The problem in Windows is hiding stuff from people who shouldn't see it. You need Windows Server with Access-Based Enumeration (ABE).
As i found out from reading here is that you can't pass through a pool to Hyper-V.

So the idea is to share the pool in Windows, mount it in Linux and do the Samba stuff (users/permissions) there.
Would that work?

Not sure what the permissions then would be on the disks in Windows?
Which user to set on the pool share (everyone)?

In theory, that would probably work.  But I've not done so personally.  

You could also create shares with $ at the end, and that will hide the share from other windows systems.  It's not a great solution as people can still access it.
