CIFS Home Directories only Windows administrator Can create them.

Hiya,

Im creating Dynamic Home directories for Windows.

My share is %w and my relative path is %w. 

My search path is /mycif, so under this directory I've create 3 user folders; Administrrator, Dave, Sam.

 

Then in Windows I used the format \\vserver\username

It works for the Administrator(finds the already created folder)

But for the other 2 users it says the directory cannot be found.

 

Any Ideas?

Hi Mike,

You can run the commands below to check if Home Directory is configured properly.
::> cifs home-directory search-path show -vserver <svm> <<<<<< This should show all the search paths configured.
::> cifs home-directory show-user -vserver <svm> -username <domain\username> <<< This would show the Home Directory Path for the user if found. if missing then it means the directory for the user is not created.
::> file-directory show -vserver <svm> -path <user_homedir_full_path> << This will show the permission set on the home dir path

Hiya,

Thanks for the info.

I solved the problem by using Poweshell to create the home directories on the Windows side. The Netapp was setup correctly.
