Re: changing security styles -- affects on volumes and qtrees

Hi there:

If you change security style from unix to cifs: obviously the unix will forbid its access because of complete protocol change and users will experience the issues.

If you change security style from cifs to UNIX: obviously the cifs users will disconnect and the share will be nfs only.

In the both cases, the /etc/usermap should be configured well in advance accordingly.

The best document to refer is: http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3490.pdf

Thank you,
