Thanks,

Nayab

Re: CIFS SHARES

Your windows admin is right, because you added also the "Authenticated Users":

"The Authenticated Users group also includes the local computer account (computername$) and the built-in SYSTEM account.  Because of this the Authenticated Users also contains the domain computer accounts (domain\computername$) from all trusted domains."

Re: CIFS SHARES

Under "manage" you should be able to remove the "Authenticated Users" on that share ... but actually I am seldom using FilerView ...

on CLI

>cifs access -delete SVUSFS01 "Authenticated Users"
