CIFS on vol0 (root vol)

D_BEREZENKO

Hi.

I've heard that CIFS is free for use on vol0 (root vol) even if CIFS is not licensed.

Is it true and how to configure and start to share through CIFS my vol0?

Thanks.

Block protocols (FCP/iSCSI) licenses enable limited CIFS functionality. You are able to add filer to domain, authenticate users through domain and have access to /etc. I’m not sure it is full featured access, but it should be enough to be able to fetch files from it or drop firmware into it.
