Samba, kernel 2.6.13.x and soft links on remote machine
The problem showed up after upgrading of my client computer's kernel from 2.4.x to 2.6.13.x - in the 2.4 time the soft links on server were interpreted as directories within samba share (it was necessary to NOT compile in kernel the Unix Extensions for Samba).
Now, having 2.6 kernel the soft links on remote machine's shares directory the client ties to resolve as local soft links, which in most cases simply does not exists or - in the worst case- leads to the _local directory_ which has nothing commond witht the server's one except the identic path.
for example - there is the share on remote machine \\server\share, within the shared directory is made the soft link <b>Sorces</b> pointing to the _servers_ /usr/src. After smbmount i am getting access to the shared directory which has the soft link pointing to the _client's_ /usr/src.
I tried to decipher the option to be turned off or on within the kernel's config (similar to the one in 2.4), but had no success until now.
So, is it possible to have the same behavior as in 2.4 time or this is the special feature everyone must be happy with?
