Some will notice that editing, /etc/samba/smb.conf will not save changes when you reboot, this is because Buffalo have embedded a reconfiguration script to prevent any issues, this script is launched on start up.
 +
 +
So first lets edit out the configuration script:
 +
 +
'''nano /etc/init.d/smb.sh'''
 +
 +
Comment out the configuration block, i.e.:
 +
 +
configure()
 +
{
 +
        ## configure files from Buffalo parameters.
 +
        echo "configure samba"
 +
        touch /etc/printcap
 +
        /usr/local/sbin/nas_configgen -c samba
 +
        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
 +
                echo "$0 configure fail"
 +
                exit 1
 +
        fi
 +
}
 +
 +
Make it:
 +
 +
#configure()
 +
#{
 +
#        ## configure files from Buffalo parameters.
 +
#        echo "configure samba"
 +
#        touch /etc/printcap
 +
#        /usr/local/sbin/nas_configgen -c samba
 +
#        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
 +
#                echo "$0 configure fail"
 +
#                exit 1
 +
#        fi
 +
#}
 +
 +
Then also a few lines down in the '''start()''' block edit this:
 +
 +
start()
 +
{
 +
        configure
 +
 +
To this:
 +
 +
start()
 +
{
 +
        #configure
 +
 +
So now at bootup when the samba script runs, it will not reconfigure it self.
 +
 +
Now lets add a simple share
 +
 +
mkdir /mnt/disk1/sharename
 +
chmod 777 /mnt/disk1/sharename
 +
 +
And edit the smb.conf
 +
 +
'''nano /etc/samba/smb.conf'''
 +
 +
This is the current share:
 +
 +
[share]
 +
    comment = LinkStation folder
 +
    path = /mnt/disk1/share
 +
    browsable = yes
 +
    printable = no
 +
    writable = yes
 +
    guest ok = yes
 +
    force create mode = 666
 +
    force directory mode = 777
 +
    vfs objects = recycle
 +
    recycle:repository = trashbox
 +
    recycle:keeptree = 1
 +
    recycle:versions = 1
 +
    recycle:directory_mode = 777
 +
 +
So lets make our own:
 +
 +
[sharename]
 +
    comment = Our new share
 +
    path = /mnt/disk1/sharename
 +
    browsable = yes
 +
    printable = no
 +
    writable = yes
 +
    guest ok = yes
 +
    force create mode = 666

    force directory mode = 777
 +
    vfs objects = recycle
 +
    recycle:repository = trashbox
 +
    recycle:keeptree = 1
 +
    recycle:versions = 1
 +
    recycle:directory_mode = 777
 +
 +
Now if you want to get rid of that annoying trashbox just remove these lines:
 +
 +
    recycle:repository = trashbox
 +
    recycle:keeptree = 1
 +
    recycle:versions = 1
 +
    recycle:directory_mode = 777
 +
 +
And to restart samba
 +
 +
'''/etc/init.d/smb.sh restart'''

Features

The LS-LGL series is a very stripped down NAS compared to the other LinkStations.

  • 1Gb/s Ethernet Port.
  • No configuration through web browser.
  • Can only be configured with NASNavigator application on the CD.
  • Uses a fixed hostname "LS-LGL" and the last three digits of the MAC address.
  • Uses only workgroup "WORKGROUP".
  • Has only a single share for the whole drive.
  • Can be configured for a simple password protecting the share (no user administration).

DNS Issues

  • Edit the nsswitch.conf file, make it "dns hosts: files", this should resolve all dns issues.

Custom Samba Configuration

Some will notice that editing, /etc/samba/smb.conf will not save changes when you reboot, this is because Buffalo have embedded a reconfiguration script to prevent any issues, this script is launched on start up.

So first lets edit out the configuration script:

nano /etc/init.d/smb.sh

Comment out the configuration block, i.e.:

configure()
{
        ## configure files from Buffalo parameters.
        echo "configure samba"
        touch /etc/printcap
        /usr/local/sbin/nas_configgen -c samba
        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
                echo "$0 configure fail"
                exit 1
        fi
}

Make it:

#configure()
#{
#         ## configure files from Buffalo parameters.
#        echo "configure samba"
#        touch /etc/printcap
#        /usr/local/sbin/nas_configgen -c samba
#        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
#                echo "$0 configure fail"
#                exit 1
#        fi
#}

Then also a few lines down in the start() block edit this:

start()
{
        configure

To this:

start()
{
       #configure

So now at bootup when the samba script runs, it will not reconfigure it self.

Now lets add a simple share

mkdir /mnt/disk1/sharename
chmod 777 /mnt/disk1/sharename

And edit the smb.conf

nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

This is the current share:

[share]
   comment = LinkStation folder
   path = /mnt/disk1/share
   browsable = yes
   printable = no
   writable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   force create mode = 666
   force directory mode = 777
   vfs objects = recycle
   recycle:repository = trashbox
   recycle:keeptree = 1
   recycle:versions = 1
   recycle:directory_mode = 777

So lets make our own:

[sharename]
   comment = Our new share
   path = /mnt/disk1/sharename
   browsable = yes
   printable = no
   writable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   force create mode = 666
   force directory mode = 777
   vfs objects = recycle
   recycle:repository = trashbox
   recycle:keeptree = 1
   recycle:versions = 1
   recycle:directory_mode = 777

Now if you want to get rid of that annoying trashbox just remove these lines:

   recycle:repository = trashbox
   recycle:keeptree = 1
   recycle:versions = 1
   recycle:directory_mode = 777

And to restart samba

/etc/init.d/smb.sh restart
