Openfiler share naming issue. It appends logical volume name to the share name.


Greetings all,

I have a very peculiar problem. We have a implementation of Open filer server for NAS purpose and is used as network storage for file dumping. Not used as SAN or anything. Just file sharing and dumping.
It has important files kept and is working fine with Active Directory integration and permissions.
But the shares named by Open filer are weird. For example we have:
Logical volume: info_share1 mounted at /mnt/info_share1.
There is a directory share1 inside this.
A share created under share1 called Software.
The client sees the share as
info_share1.share1.Software
And this all is done by Samba. The share names need to be changed directly in samba configuration manually.
Is there a way for samba not to append the volume names to the shares so that clients also see the share as Software only?

By default OpenFiler adds the share name to the path to the share, replacing / with . That explains your share name, and this FAQ entry (and the next one, two in all) explains how to fix it.
