NetSUS - local path for distro point?

New Contributor

Howdy folks,

I am setting up a NetSUS to be a Distro point for our JSS.

What is the local path supposed to be? I have looked around on the NetSUS beastie itself and the docs...

Sorry if this is a silly question...




I'm not sure if this is officially supported, but I created a "Casper" share on my NetSUS by creating a new folder at /srv/samba/Casper and then modifying /etc/samba/smb.conf to include the following section at the end

comment = Casper
path = /srv/samba/Casper
browseable = no
guest ok = no
read only = yes
create mask = 0755
read list = smbuser
write list = smbuser
valid users = smbuser

After that, just restart the SMB service in the NetSUS web console and add the share to your JSS as a new distribution point. In my setup, I only specified the name, the address, and the info on the "File Sharing" tab. I left the "Local Path" field blank.

Note this is on NetSUS v1.02. I'm about to play around with NetSUS v2.0 and also the new JDS.
