    I am trying to modify /etc/smb.conf file, but it appears that the changes get overwritten from some other location. I SSH into the box, use nano to edit the file, save the changes and verify that the changes have been committed. Once I restart the samba service, the changes are no longer in the file. The changes I am specifically trying to make relate to improving integration with OS X clients.
