I am running two servers and wish to mount a directory on one from the other. For various reasons, I wish to use Samba (smbfs) rather than NFS.
ServerA mounts ServerB with this in the fstab:
//ServerB/sambashare /mount/point smbfs username=blah,password=blah,ro
This works, and I can see the contents of sambashare in /mount/point. However, a symlink in that directory which, on Server A, points at /tmp/blah is not resolving correctly. If I try to go into the directory, it says Permission denied.
The Samba server on ServerB has the following global settings:
follow symlinks = yes wide links = yes
Any suggestions on why this may not be working? The link does resolve correctly locally on ServerB.
(The names of servers, shares, etc. have been changed to protect the innocent.)
