Mentioned below is the share configuration added to smb.conf.
Windows clients are given access to all directories along the path "/containers/rda-nas/BackupRoot/Cores/XXX" from "/" instead of directory XXX alone as the share's root directory.
In NFS if we export a path, clients will never be known of parent directories along the export path.
Why in samba, clients are given access to all directories along the configured share path?
Could anyone point out what configuration would disallow access to folders(/directories) along the configured share path?
