I currently started using a Debian 9 server for my day-to-day tests.
Because most of the time the system ends destroyed in my hands, I was thinking about doing a backup of my
smb.conf on a public GitHub repo and use them on my system after a system fix or reinstall.
Those files are used to mount the partitions (
fstab) and create network shares with samba (
smb.confg). Most of the time they contain a way to identify the HDD/SSD/RAID even if is plugged on another PC by using the UUID of the drive.
- Is safe to share the UUID of my local drives?
- If the UUID is shared, what can a random user do with it?
- What precautions should I take with the UUID of my drives?
