Description Reinhard Nißl 2017-10-02 14:20:59 UTC

after upgrading to openSUSE Leap 42.3, I had to add

  unix extensions = No
  wide links = Yes

in my smb.conf, to follow links that previously worked before upgrading.

My share

  path = /

exports the whole file system. And I can access the link target \\platon\root\data\web directly.

The link itself looks like that:

  platon:/ # dir web
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Jul  6  2012 web -> data/web

IMHO, this is not a wide link, i. e. it doesn't leave the exported directory tree.

But without the above options, it nolonger works to access \\platon\root\web.

Should it matter, that data is a mount point?

  platon:/ # mount | grep ' /data '
  /dev/sda6 on /data type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
