I have an AIX 5.2 system running samba 2.2.0
I have a directory /FIX010/%prt that I want to share. There is a
symlink, /FIX010/pq to it. The path statement in smb.conf points to
/FIX010/pq, and this used to work, but with the current version of samba
the directory is seen as empty, and logging at level 3 shows an access
I have tried 'path = /FIX010/%%prt' and 'path = /FIX010/\%prt' and also
including a file with the path statement. That %p keeps getting
expanded. (%p is empty).
Unfortunately there are many programs in the system that look for %prt.
I have considered renaming the directory and making %prt a symlink to
it, but I am concerned about breaking something else.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
