Out of support problem :: CIFS filesystem exported to NFS client

In a nutshell
Ontap 7.3.7p2 on a N3300, one snaplock volume, one cifs share. Oracle app....

AIX 7.11 client.needs nfs3 RW access.

 

/etc/exportfs

 

#Auto-generated by setup Thu Sep 23 10:18:44 EDT 2010
/vol/vol0 -sec=sys,rw,nosuid
/vol/N330002Avol0 -sec=sys,rw,nosuid
/vol/archives -sec=sys,rw,nosuid
/vol/archives/qarchives -actual=/vol/archives/qarchives,sec=sys,rw=xxx.xxx.xxx.188,root=xxx.xxx.xxx.188

 

Root account can mount and list

Non root cannot with permissions error.

 

Not convinced Ontap is the issue, but have to prove it.

Re: Out of support problem :: CIFS filesystem exported to NFS client

A couple of things.  

 

First, your system is old and need an upgrade

 

Second, you are using -actual, but are still exporting it as is.  The way I use -actual is for aliases, not in the way you are

 

third,

 

Map the user to root in usermap.cfg file

Thanks for your really quick response. Smiley Happy

 

1. agreed, not mine, just helping out. In another life I deployed and/or supported over forty 7mode systems across NA. My first recommendation was "UPGRADE NOW" 

 

2. agreed, however at this time we are only troubleshooting. It's a temp solution until decisions are made by the bean counters.

 

3. I have mapped a AIX user to a windows domain user that has required permissions : added " domain\username <= username", where usernames are the same. Not helpful.

WCC -s and -u confirm the mapping.

 

Reading the docs and believe this will do, can you confirm?

root <= oracleadmin

 

Thanks much
