Enabling a policy to prevent the creation of .DS_Store files on network shares can speed up directory browsing (as described in this article) and prevent permission errors when moving/deleting files.
To prevent the Mac workstation from creating .DS_Store files on network shares, as well as instruct it to ignore existing .DS_Stores, open Terminal and enter:
defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores -bool TRUE
and then log out/log in the macOS user account, or simply reboot the workstation.
To check the current policy in place, enter:
defaults read com.apple.desktopservices
If .DS_Store files are disallowed for network shares, "DSDontWriteNetworkStores = 1" should be displayed.
Note: To remove this policy and restore the default behavior, enter
defaults delete com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores
