CIFS setup to authenticate through Filer local users

We have a linux appliance that doesn't admit NFS protocol, we could only configure a CIFS volume.

Is there any way to setup CIFS to authenticate from linux client with local filer users database without windows domains or groups ?

Thanks a lot,

Re: CIFS setup to authenticate through Filer local users

There is an option for /etc/passwd in cifs setup too... if not already in workgroup or domain mode you could setup option 4 in cifs setup for local.  Or even workgroup and useradmin user add local users (up to 96).

Have you looked at 2 technical reports (tr-3457 and tr-3458)?  These are reports directed at authentication via LDAP, UNIX and Active Directory.

Re: CIFS setup to authenticate through Filer local users

Thanks for your clues! That is working  after:

1.- "cifs setup" -> option (4)  etc/passwd and/or NIS/LDAP authentication

2.- Filer: "useradmin user add User1 -g Guests"

3.- Fix a password for "User1" with passwd command

4.- Assign "Full Access" to User1 in share access

5.- Adding "*\User1 => root" in usermaps file in /etc

6.- Mounting the cifs share from linux client as: 

               mount -t   cifs      //"filer ip"/"ShareToMap"      /"LocalMountPoint"      -o user="User1"

Best regards,
