Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have come across an interesting situation which I am looking for a solution to.
The home office has an image storage directory which contains 3 subdirectories. There is no data in the root of this image directory.
The remote office has an image storage directory with no subdirectories. All data is stored in the root of the directory.
I would like to mount the 3 subdirectories of the home office within the root directory of the remote office.
I configured autofs to mount the home office root directory as an SMBFS file sytem to the remote office /mnt directory. This seemed to work alright. I was able to access the mount via a samba share. I then created symlinks in the remote office root directory to the mounted subdirectories of the home office. I cannot get these symlinks to work.

This may stem from a authentication/security issue. Not sure though. You might try backing off all security and authentication for a period of testing and then add back as needed. Also, the two lines you show should be placed in the share sections not just the global Another thing just occurred to me also, make sure and check your file permissions and ownership. Make sure you are allowing the client to all the needed files. I think you might also want to add "hide dot files = no" in each of the needed shares. It defaults to yes so that might prevent access. try those and repost.
