Network Storage Protocols Discussions
We have a linux appliance that doesn't admit NFS protocol, we could only configure a CIFS volume.
Is there any way to setup CIFS to authenticate from linux client with local filer users database without windows domains or groups ?
Thanks a lot,
See The Solution
There is an option for /etc/passwd in cifs setup too... if not already in workgroup or domain mode you could setup option 4 in cifs setup for local. Or even workgroup and useradmin user add local users (up to 96).
Have you looked at 2 technical reports (tr-3457 and tr-3458)? These are reports directed at authentication via LDAP, UNIX and Active Directory.
Thanks for your clues! That is working after:
1.- "cifs setup" -> option (4) etc/passwd and/or NIS/LDAP authentication
2.- Filer: "useradmin user add User1 -g Guests"
3.- Fix a password for "User1" with passwd command
4.- Assign "Full Access" to User1 in share access
5.- Adding "*\User1 => root" in usermaps file in /etc
6.- Mounting the cifs share from linux client as:
mount -t cifs //"filer ip"/"ShareToMap" /"LocalMountPoint" -o user="User1"
