I have a headless Ubuntu 10.10 RC box running a few service applications on my home network. I have a Windows 2008 Server hosting all my network shares and hard drives. I am currently mounting the network drives at boot-up using FSTAB with the following options set:
What option do I need to set to get SYMLINKS to properly register using CIFS?
I have to admit the info in
man mount.cifs doesn't seem to provide a clear enough definition of which options I should be using for proper support.
When running RSYNC from the Ubuntu machine to back up selected folders to the Windows shares, it fails trying to recreate the SYMLINKS. I am concerned that this will create a problem when later trying to restore these files back should I ever need to.
