mounting NFS from Windows NAS (NFS server for unix) got hidden folders


We have tried to utilize a windows NAS with NFS for windows running, on our AIX 5.3 server to take advantage of some more storage.

Problem is now that some files and folders on NFS share, are hidden and that is not working with "ls -l" and find, du and other commands.

It is not a "." issue, folder can be "test" or so, it is found on the windows end of the share but not seen in the NFS mounted location.

I can access the hidden folder with CD directory and i can update files, but it is not visible.

Anyone seen this type of NFS error before? maybe with use of NFS server for windows?

edit: restarting nfs server for windows, umount/mount share have been tested and failed. I can rename the hidden folder to ".test" and suddenly it is visible with "ls -la". When i rename it back to "test" it is no longer visible.

I think there is an illegal (invisible?) char in the filename or something like this happened. (Or the permissions not mapped correctly.)
