Need help to create a local group in SVM with readonly access to CIFS shares

Hi,

We have a requirement to provide RO access to all CIFS shares of SVM1 for a domain group, who further uses MMC to view the shares. Can you suggest how can we acheive this?

Using Computer Management, you can connect to the CIFS Server and configure permissions exactly the same way you would for a Windows CIFS Server. Add permissions to the shares directly from the Shares link.

Hi there,

 

I like to do these things at the command line:

 

security login create -user-or-group-name "domainname\ROGroup" -application http -role readonly -vserver svm_95_nas -authentication-method domain

You may want to do multiple entries for the application modifier if you want them to have access other methods as well, typically "http, ontapi, ssh".

 

Then add those users to the AD Group called "ROGroup" or whatever you call it in your domain.
