[Samba] How to get rid of the \\my_server\homes share?

Hi TeeCee, all,

No, I only have the following section in smb.conf regarding the home dir

	read only = No

This results in:


There is no [%U] in smb.conf.

If I delete the [homes] section both \\my_dom\homes and \\my_dom\smithjohn
are no longer available.

If I change it to:

	read only = No
	browseable = No

This results in:


Which is better but \\my_dom\homes is still accessible as you said - which
is not a problem I guess.

Thanks all!

Hi! :o)

You must have two shares defined in Your smb.conbf or any included files.

  > I'm seeing both a share \\my_server\homes and a share
This must be: [homes]
  > \\my_server\<username>.
This must be [%U]

If You don't need any of them, just delete that section or use the mailed 
solution: browseable = no (note that in this solution the shares remaining
the shares but You cannot see it in the shareslist - but You can use it!)

BYE: TeeCee :o)
