This will help if you are using sym links.
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
unix extensions = no
Default install has wide no and unix yes.Once I changed /etc/samba/smb.conf settings to the above sym links worked great.
Side notes:I could share one folder with a many folders from all over the server. really nice to handle a big sharing sever for media and software for family.I just hit 10TB of Plex Media and 8TB of ISO's. Iso i need to clean up i think .. lol.But plex I moved to a docker container so I would teach myself docker to help me at work.It is doing really well there, Surprised myself. I thought it would suck. But it acts just like it did any other place I have had it.Docker is something to look at and its kinda fun to learn. And $$$ if you work in the industry.
