File Server Migration

we have problems to migrate our file server to the new fas2040 cifs enviroment with keeping the old netbios servername

after successfully syncronised the data file we are disabled the old fileserver, on the fas2040 we added a alias ipaddress and a alias netbios name from the old file server

we left the old dns pointer for the file server, additional we configured on the fas2040 the wins servers. after we customized that the cifs service on fas2040 was restarted automaticly.

we can ping the fas2040 over netbios nd fqdn name from the old file server but when we try to access the shares over a w2k3 server an xpsp3 clients with

\\oldservername\

\\oldservername\share

\\oldservername.fqdn\share

or login scripts

we always becomes a error message that we have not enough rights to access the network ressource.

\\fas2040\share woks well........

does somebody know this problem ???

i was happy about all postings.......

Re: File Server Migration

Have you verified the ACL setting for accessing the share ?

Try Mapping the share as a drive and use alternate login-id ( say of administrator ) and see if the problem persists...

Re: File Server Migration

hi,

the acl´s are checked and are right

we have tried to connect with "net use" as domain administrator and become the same error

when i trie this with the correct filer name works well

Sadly the link doesn't work anymore.  I even tried googling kb31272 and didn't find anything, and looking within the internal kb didn't surface anything.

After a search on the KB for "file server migration" the second hit showed what this link is suppose to point to:

In brief:

Cause

The alias is the name of the old storage system and the computer account in the Active Domain (AD) prevented access to that alias.

Solution

Delete the computer account for the old Windows file server from the domain.

Rerun cifs nbalias load on the new storage system.
