Is there an eventual goal to get ReFS and Dynamic Access Control compatible with each other? It definitely took some effort, troubleshooting, and research to locate the few small notes that the two do not work together. As this was a Beta server build, it was easy enough to just reformat and start over with the test data. I can see some people making use of the new ReFS on initial builds in production, and not being aware that they have closed the door on Dynamic Access Control functionality.

Thank you for checking into this. It is more of a general curiosity on my part at this point, and also a suggestion that this is more clearly is communicated to the general popluatation. I've already learned of the incompatability, but wanted to make sure others were aware if they went down the same path. As I said, it wasn't easy to find the small notations within the beta documentation, so hopefully it will be made clearer if the two stay incompatible.

DAC utilizes File Classification. File Classification stores its tags in a file's alternate data stream. Enhanced NTFS still supports alternate data streams but not the version of ReFS shipped with Windows 8.
Will Alternate Data Streams be supported in Windows 8?:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w8itproinstall/thread/b0f6c267-551e-4d89-88d6-a355247d2b60
