I have the following share setup on my Ubuntu machine
# From /etc/fstab //192.168.1.13/media /home/USER/SHARE/media cifs username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD,_netdev,uid=USER,gid=users 0 0
However when I try to create a symlink in the mounted directory I get the following error.
$ ln -s file sym_file ln: creating symbolic link `sym_file': Operation not supported
I've tried this from my Mac which is also communicating over the same protocol and the creation of syms is allowed? Does anyone know what's prevent me from doing this under Linux.
