Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

This is my first attempt at creating CIFS shares in c-mode.  I followed the Cheat Sheet document (DOC-16964) for the basics, but I get error "Windows can not access \\<ip>\wdc_test$.

I don't know if this is relevant or not, but our DNS Domain and AD Domain don't have the same name.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

I'd suggest opening a case up.

Troubleshooting this will require cluster logs and packet traces. The errors Windows generally returns aren't very descriptive. Since you're using an IP instead of a hostname, DNS shouldn't factor in here. However, keep in mind you can add additional DNS domains to the vserver.

I'd recommend checking the export policy rules for that export policy to ensure you're not restricting access to CIFS at all, as well as the allowed protocols on your data LIF.

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

The export policy is wide open.

chvpk-cmode-flab:Smiley Embarassed vserver export-policy rule show -vserver lab_dcr_cifs -policyname cifs -fields rorule,rwrule,protocol

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

Needs the default unix user and usually set to pcuser. And create the unix user and group for it then cifs options modify to set to pcuser.

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

Try making superuser "any" in the export policy rule in addition to what Scott mentioned.

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

Also, in the future, use "vserver setup" instead of "vserver create" in CLI.

If using System Manager, these issues are resolved in the 3.0 version, which is in beta. You may be able to sign up for the beta release.

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

I created "pcuser" default unix-user and unix-group and set cifs options "default-unix-user" to pcuser

I added a wide open ro rule to "default" export policy.

I can now access shares. 

Re: Need help troubleshooting access to c-mode cifs share

So I also ran into this and it took me a while to resolve.  When you run vserver setup from the CLI for a CIFS vServer, all works well.  When doing the same from System Manager (haven't tried 3.0 yet) it doesn't work.  Yes, you can manually create accounts to fix this.  However, try running through all of that for a customer demo... (too many steps to be cool).  Try this:

1) Create a CIFS vServer through System Manager as usual.

     a.  Choose the default for LDAP and Local Users (Default)

          **This will auto create all the default accounts for your (not name mappings required).

2) run the following command at the CLI once the CIFS vserver is up and running:

     a.  vserver modify  -vserver <name> -ns-switch file

          **The default switch is set to ldap so the default local users (root and daemon stuff for unix) are not referenced.

This is faster and much easier than manually creating users.  :-)
