• The Samba protocols SMB2 and SMB3 seems not to allow unix symbolic links to be stored on a cifs share (is this right?)
  • this could be verified by forcing the protocol version as an mount.cifs option for instance to vers=3.0
  • instead Samba has for these protocols mfsymlinks as symbolic links

Problem: When nautilus (Ubuntu 18.04, GNOME nautilus 3.26.4) opens one of these mfsymlinks, just a new window opens without changing to the linked folder. Files seems to be opened correctly.

How could nautilus support these mfsymlinks in a correct way?
