I've downloaded many snaps, reloaded many from scratch (because I tried so many things I lost continuity) with the same results.
I run LMCE on a dedicated network without username/password access.
On 12.04 I've deleted the symlinks from Windows Shares [34 & 35] and when I go to /mnt/device/XX and try an cd or ls I get symbolic link error.
The NAS HDD's are using the LMCE directory tree, nothing is different on it from 10.04.
I can run the NAS fine under 10.04 and have even reloaded 10.04 from scratch (more than once after playing with it).
One thing is that with the ls -l cmd file permissions on 10.04 for /mnt/device are drwxrwxrwx (777) with ownership root:root
When i go down the tree to /mnt/device/XX permissions are the same but ownership changes to 501:501 (DNS-323 ownership format)
On 12.04 the /mnt/device permissions are 555 (why?). I chmod 777 XX but can't change them -R option because of symlink error.
On a reboot the deleted Windows Share links gets recreated and the permissions for /mnt/device/XX go back to 555.
On 10.04 & 12.04 the Windows Shares are lrwxrwxrwx (777) permission and ownership root:public.
However on 10.04 using the ls -l command on /home/public/data/videos the Windows Share is cyan with the symlink to /mnt/device/XX/public/data/videos with green background.
On 12.04 the Windows Share-Volume-X [XX] is red and symlink -> mnt/device/XX/public/data/videos as well.
Red is bad. Why is it red? It was autodetected and created but the drives aren't being handled the same.
So. do I look into detection scripts for 12.04 permissions/etc, or do I look into NAS ownership? (I don't know if I can do ownership changes on the DNS.)
There are other DNS 323 users out there but I haven't heard from any.
I've tried smb.conf follow symlinks=yes but no joy.
I could try to build NAS4Free or FreeNAS and see if that'll work. It might give me a hint.
I don't really want to run funplug or jerk around with the DLink if I don't have to.
