In this tutorial, you’ll use the QF2 dashboard to create a Server Message Block (SMB) share. The share allows SMB clients to share data stored in a particular directory.
Point to Sharing and then click SMB Shares from the drop-down list.
You should see something similar to this screen, which lists the available shares.
In this example, there are no shares.
The SMB Share dialog box appears.
You must fill in all the required files. Here are the definitions.
Here is an example that creates a new directory named testshare. It allows guests, is read-writeable, and does not have access-based enumeration.
Once the operation completes, the newly created share appears on the SMB Shares list.
You can edit a share's properties.
On the SMB Shares page, click the pencil icon next to the directory whose quota you want to change.
The SMB Share dialog box opens.
You can delete a share.
On the SMB Shares page, click the trashcan icon next to the share you want to delete.
You will be asked to confirm the deletion.
Click Yes, Delete to confirm the deletion or click Cancel to keep the share.
