Q: Why are manual changes to configuration files (like SMB.CONF) not saved after a reboot?
A:
Because NAS4Free settings are managed from the WebGUI and all configuration information is stored in a single, monolithic configuration file that recreates each service configuration file upon service restart OR system reboot. That makes NAS4Free different from FreeBSD and other *nix distributions. Manual changes to configuration files like SMB.CONF in NAS4Free are NOT permanent under any installation/platform. The easiest/best way to ensure custom settings remain in effect after a service is restarted, or the system is booted, is to enter them in the ” Auxiliary Parameters ” box provided on most WebGUI services configuration pages. Reference: {smb.conf doesn't save after samba restart}
