Hi All,

I created a bunch of files in a samba share and also created few soft links
which points to files in the same directory.

The problem is, when i try to delete all the files at once from windows
client, it fails at deleting soft links. When it comes to soft liks, it
deletes only the original file but not the link itself.

Can anyone please give information on how to delele the softlink itself from
a windows client?

I am using samba version '3.0.8pre1-0.pre1.3' under Redhat FC 3

Please CC me in your reply.
