Symlinks not translated on Samba 3.


Hi:

My problem:

After upgrading Samba 2 to Samba 3 (tested 3.0.6 & 3.0.9) on a:

--> WhiteBox Linux (RedHat Enterprise 3) on Dell Poweredge 2600,

my linux clients (samba 2 & 3, mdk 10.0) can no longer get symlinks translated on the server, instead getting the path on the local FS of the workstations (so we can't "cd" into the directory (on the server) the symlink is pointing to).

- Read about this problem solved on 3.0.9, so I compiled it from source with the same (bad) results.
- Tried any kind of "follow symlinks" & "wide links" combination within smb.conf with no luck.


Any clue ?
Someone facing this problem?

no, i have samba v3.0.4... and not one problem with symlinks...

--guess a delay of upgrade would be good in my case--

Well, I have just checked that 3.0.0 also didn't worked.

well, of course symlinks are working.
But apart from that, if I go back to Samba 2, symlinks start working again)
Any clue ?
