I have not modified the smb.conf directly (only indirectly through the
Synology user interface), but it definitely has a long history, over
several major and minor DSM versions...
I have no problem working with Synology, but I thoiught an error like
not removing broken symbolic links is something they would have to
discuss with the Samba development team anyway. So I came here directly,
and hope to get details I can use in a discussion with Synology.
Synology has a default smb.conf in /usr/syno/etc.default/. The trouble
with starting from that default smb.conf is that I don't know what magic
Synology has implemented in addition to the plain samba support. So if I
can get some insight without having to do that, I would prefer that.
Let's see what Jeremy comes up with.
