SE aditional drive share

SE aditional drive share

SE aditional drive share

Hello Experts,
i can't able to share the mounted additional-hdd via the samba share.
from cli:
create share mm /dev/sdb/partition1

Path "/dev/sdb/partition1" contains system files and is not permitted to be shared.

is there any way/solution to share this partition? i want to pick up some recorded calls from the MM call storage path from Windows.

IPOSE Select R11.04

Thank you in advance

RE: SE aditional drive share

You should share the mount path and not the device, although I wouldn't mess with that.
You can just get them with SCP.

Are you sure Samba is running? Are you even sure it is there? - I've seen some Avaya security warnings around the presence of the Samba component in the OS and an intention to remove it.

Stuck in a never ending cycle of file copying.

RE: SE aditional drive share

Thank you guys, it's working.
from the cli i could't mount the additional hdd because the special characters -# not allowwed from the cli for a mount point,but after i modified the samba smb.conf with the share (mount moint instead of the device --Thanks janni78), and the share is working now :)
