I'm running OES2 on SLES 10 SP1. I turned on NSS metadata and notice
that the file .trustee_database.xml in the ._NETWARE directory is
updated every time I change rights to folders. The file looks like the
output from the metamig save command.

I'm curious, when is this file used to put the rights back onto the
folder? Does NSS load the data from this information when the volume is
mounted? Does it ever load the data from this file?
