Get the proper Group & Owner from Netapp (using autofs, sssd)
2016-08-29 08:05 AM
I have a NAS (netapp). with a windows file server that has samba shares connect to AD.
I would like to mount some shares from the NAS onto my ubuntu 16.04 server. When I mount them, I get the group and owner listed as root. I would like to get the proper group and usernames that are listed on the NAS. I will have 20+ users connecting to the server to access the NAS, so i don't want to mount as a specific user, I just want the already established groups and owners to list when a user looks at the directory. I have also tried using NFS to mount the shares, but instead of the root for group and user, and I get some arbritary number i.e. 4294967294
Here are my autofs config files
auto.master /NAS /etc/auto.cifs-shares --ghost
auto.cifs-shares home -fstype=cifs,rw,sec=krb5 ://my-nas/home\$
sssd and kerberos are configured so I am able to login to the unbuntu server with my AD credentials and mount via autofs.
Thanks a lot for you help!

I meant to say that I have also tried using NFS, but it still doesn't work. Also, if I specify a uid and gid, I get the arbritray number (however, I don't want to have to do this since there will be many users connected to the NAS, as mentioned above).
Thanks so much!
