First off, I know that naming directories is completely arbitrary, but I
am just trying to get some opinions regarding best practices.
I only use one samba share (home). There is a symlink called "share" in
each users' $HOME that points to /opt/data/share, which has a *many*
subdirectories (owned by certain groups). Since there are so many
subdirectories, I am reluctant to make them into separate shares. I
tried this once. Users just had too many drives mounted, which is what
made me decided to consolidate.
Basically, I think it is confusing to have the "share" symlink in the
home share. In addition, it is confusing to have /opt/data/share as an
NFS share. I just think that the name of the link and directory "share"
should be replaced with one of the following:
Any thoughts or suggestions?
