Any thoughts on this?
With samba 2.2.8a on solaris 8 we greated an msdfs root for all users
comment = Individual User Shared Spaces
path = /home/%U/share
msdfs root = Yes
Then under this share folder, we put all the links to other shares that
list of /usr0/<userid>/share:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 19 Dec 10 16:00 hbhe_share ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 25 Dec 10 16:00 my_files ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 23 Dec 8 16:43 flash_applications
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 27 Jul 11 2003 my_my_files ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 18 May 21 2003 iis_share ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 19 May 21 2003
veritas_netbackup_pro -> msdfs:sph1\vnbp_pro
Now, with RedHat Linux AS version 3 this scheme does not work. Whenever
we try to access
one of the links under /usr0/<userid>/share we get a pop-up message that
"H:myfiles refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a
harddrive on this computer..." etc.
smbd.log at level 10 and smb.conf attached to an earlier message that is
being held by moderator because file is too big!
We will appreciate any insights.
