"Cannot write share database" message in Share Access screen when trying to set access through GUI. Access to shares is lost.
This happens when anything other than a share exists in the /shares directory. This problem has been observed on Guardian OS 5.0 and 5.1. /etc/smb_shares.conf is purged when this problem occurs and access will need to be set again.
EDR remote backup is known to create .pl files in /shares directory when a backup is run. These files should be deleted before you attempt to modify share access.
