Custom SMB Share Names

This HOWTO walks you through changing the default share name(s) Volume_1 to one of your choosing (constrained only by smb valid share names).

Note: This has only been tested on firmware v1.04
  1. From within the D-Link web admin: Save your Configuration Settings
  2. Edit the saved file with a Linux compatible text editor (Like Notepad++)
  3. Locate [ Volume_1 ] and replace the Volume_1 string with the new share name for this volume.
    • For example:
      [ Volume_1 ]


      [ media ]
  4. Save the file and load it back up onto the DNS-323 (Using 'Load Configuration Settings')
  5. Restart the DNS-323 and the new share name will be accessible.
  • You're done!

Is it possible to create more shares than just one per volume?

  • I have not yet tested this, but it may be possible to create additional shares simply by duplicating the [ Volume_1 ] section and making changes to the paths shown.
