Access denied in SAMBA with symlinksPosted: February 17, 2015
SAMBA clients attempt to access symbolic links pointing to directories outside of the particular share, but get “Access is denied” error.
By default SAMBA now does not allow such symbolic links for safety reasons.
Add these two lines to your smb.conf
wide links = yes unix extensions = no
The first one enables full symlink support, the other one disables an option conflicting with it.
