Samba copying symlinks
« on: March 17, 2022, 07:13:44 pm »
Hello, I am trying to copy data from my Windows server onto a samba share. I have everything set up okay but on copy I get various errors to do with symlink. I managed to establish that I need to edit the Samba configuration as follows.

And I tried to create a hook /etc/zentyal/hooks/samba.postsetconf as follows

[global]
allow insecure wide links = yes

[share]
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes

exit 0

However this doesnt seem to modify  the share.conf or smb.conf after reboot ?

Do I need to create hoooks/smb.postsetconf and shares.postsetconf ??

Any ideas
Thanks
Paul

Hi,

If you want to modify a configuration file, you need to use stubs not hooks. Below you have the link from the documentation.
