Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Hello All,

I am trying to access /etc share on filer from my windows 7 PC by typing \\Filer_Name\etc$ in run but it says "Error code: 0x80070035, The network path was not found."

Filer Model: FAS3240

How can I access this folder on the netapp filer from my windows machine?

Regards,

AG

Hello,

Have you tried \\IP_ADDRESS\etc$.Maybe it is a host name resolution problem.

Also login to the console of the filer and see if this share is created and CIFS is licensed and running.

I am assuming that basic network connectivity has been setup and ping is working fine.

Thanks

Hi Balaji,

Thank You for your reply. \\IP_Address\etc$ gives same error. CIFS is licensed and running. We have many shares on this and they are OK. Ping is fine as well. You got the point. I logged into the oncommand system manager but I don't see etc share created. But if inside oncommand system manager I go to configuration -> Protocol -> CIFS -> auditing, it says auditing enabled and log file is at /etc/log/adtlog.evt.

So how do I access that if etc share is not created on this filer?

Sorry for the stupid question...

Thanks - AG

What happens if you just go to \\IP_Address\c$?

Looks like a security style conflict (NTFS, Unix).

Hi Ricardo,

Is there a way to do it right? I can't even access \\Filer_Name\c$ OR \\IP_Address\C$. It says that network path not found.

Thanks-AG

Options cifs trace_login on

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

maybe You are tying to access to a vserver or a vfiler ... in this case you can't access to /etc

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Can you access any other share on that controller from your Windows 7 workstation?  If no, then check the SMB signing security settings on your workstation and make sure that 'requiring signing (always)' is not set to 'enabled'

If you can access other shares, then make sure that this option is set (assuming you are an Admin on the controller) 'options wafl.nt_admin_priv_map_to_root on'

Vol0 where /etc resides is typically set to Unix security style so the above option will map your windows user to 'root' on the filer assuming that your windows user account is a member of the local Administrators group on the filer.

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Can you access \\[filername]\c$

Can you connect the filer's console and run a 'cifs shares' and verify that the share or shares exist?
