Hi All,


We migrated our data to a new Samba server (with Samba 3.0.23c-1 on
Debian Sarge with a kernel) but now all of a sudden we can't
follow symbolic links which goes outside (above) the folder which Samba


We have set:


   wide links = Yes

   follow symlinks = Yes


So what else could be the problem? A symlink from a subfolder to the
folder which Samba shares does work. So following symlicks isn't the
problem. It looks like "wide liks" doesn't work right.
