I Have a Netapp Device that is connected in a security VLAN there are not policies applied and no specials ACls etc. However, when I try to map the share created to a windows server it does not work. Meaning it just fails and does not prompt for password etc. In my production side I can map the drive instantly. My suggestion is since its a CIFS share it works with AD and that is the reason why it fails. Howver i create a local account that has access to the share and it works.
@SpindleNinja Hi Spindle, you are a great help. I just wanted to let you know I figure it out. You can create a local user and assign the user to the share to have access. and the reason why it was not working was because CIFS protocol was turned off on the server. so weird.
