I have a Linux NAS with Samba shares. It is in our LAN and will be accessed by 25-30 machines (most of them running Windows). There are 10-15 different shared folders with different rights for the different users.
In order to simplify for the users, I want to map network drive for everybody, each user will then have up to 15 network drives.
A previous network admin told me that he does not want to do that for resource concern, at that time, I did not question but now I do.
So, was my network admin right or can I go ahead and map drives?
Question of the resource is valid for both the server and client of course.
