CIFS share creation on 8.2 C-mode simulator

Hi,

We have simulator setup, trying to setup CIFS share on simulator setup.

Getting following error when tried to create cifs share:

-----------------------

ecccluster1::> vserver cifs share create -vserver cifs-vserver -share-name QECIFS -path /vol/qecifsshare

Error: command failed: Failed to get CIFS server. Reason: entry doesn't exist.

ecccluster1::>

-----------------------

We were unable to create CIFS server on the setup, CIFS server is pre-requite for the CIFS share creation ?

How to confiure CIFS server on simulated setup.

Please provide the steps(command set) to setup CIFS share on the simulator setup.

Thanks

Hi,

In Clustered ONTAP all user data is provided by Vservers. it sounds like you haven't yet created one.

Try "vserver show" on the command line. You need a Vserver of type "data" that is configured to serve NAS protocols.

Such a server can be created via either the cluster command line (CLI) or the System Manager (GUI).

You will also need some other components e.g. an Aggregate to hold the volume/share as well as a Logical Interface (LIF) to connect your Vserver.

This is all the same for the simulator as for a "real" system, but quite a bit different than it was in ONTAP version 7. So probably you have quite some reading to do :-)

If you are in a hurry, maybe a good starting place would be the new Express Guides - these are very "task oriented". See for example: Clustered_Data_ONTAP_82_Multiprotocol_Server.pdf.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Robb.
