Hopefully this is the right forum for this question. Thinking ahead to
OES2 SP1 what are the pros and cons of using CIFS vs AFP for our
Macintosh clients. Since Macs can also use CIFS why use AFP at all?

I guess I know their is one benefit regarding cross platform file locks.
AFP to NCP file locking is supported, CIFS to NCP is not. But are
their other reasons to use AFP instead of CIFS?
