Is it possible to disable a Samba share without deleting it? I am in the process of migrating data off of the UCS to a dedicated NAS that is connected to LDAP. I have already rsync’d the data to the NAS, set correct permissions, adjusted GPOs to point to the new shares, etc. However, when I restart,
gpupdate /force → restart, clients are still using the original ucs share. I have verified this by creating a
zztest.txt file in the share root. My thinking is that if I can disable the share in ucs, windows clients would then look for the share again (same share name, different ip addr, \10.14.2.2\Prod → \10.14.2.6\Prod). Ideally this would happen with nothing more than a restart.
The reason I’d like to disable and not delete the share is in case anything might go wrong. I’d rather not have to setup those samba shares again as I remember it being kind of a pain…
