CIFS SHARES

Hi Experts,

I am a fresher to Netapp and i have some confusion regarding the CIFS share permissions where my windows admin complained that even a local machine security permission  is able to access CIFS shares where the access what i have given is only for DOMAIN USERS FULL CONTROL, can you people help me how to fix this and when i checked the CIFS shares and please help me how to understand the screen shot below.

Thanks,

Nayab

Re: CIFS SHARES

Your windows admin is right, because you added also the "Authenticated Users":

"The Authenticated Users group also includes the local computer account (computername$) and the built-in SYSTEM account.  Because of this the Authenticated Users also contains the domain computer accounts (domain\computername$) from all trusted domains."

Hi Mark,

I came to understand this now will you be able to help me how to change this to only DOMAIN USERS referring the above screen shot i mean in GUI how i have to navigate and select this option  to restrict permissions to DOMAIN USERS avoiding the LOCAL MACHINE USERS. Please help me out.

Thanks

Re: CIFS SHARES

Under "manage" you should be able to remove the "Authenticated Users" on that share ... but actually I am seldom using FilerView ...

on CLI

>cifs access -delete SVUSFS01 "Authenticated Users"

Hi Mark,

Thanks a lot if i run this command the share will be available only to  DOMAIN USERS on the specified machines right and hope it will not disturb anything.

Thanks
