Samba Following Symbolic Links

From aoxoaWiki

By default, SAMBA won't follow symbolic links.

As well, following links outside the 'share' requires a special directive.

Recent versions of SAMBA also require disabling unix extensions to follow links outside the share:

Edit the /etc/smb.conf file

  [global]
     ......
     unix extensions = No
     
  ......
  [share_name]
     ......
     follow symlinks = Yes
     wide links = Yes

Then start and restart both the nmb and smb services:

  systemctl restart smb.service
  systemctl restart nmb.service
