cifs setup - automated via batch-file (ssh/rsh)?


I have a customer who needs to set up new vFilers with CIFS 100% automated via ssh/rsh.

He has a provisioning application via a web-frontend which allows "customers" inside his enterprise to "buy" a fileserver.

The creation of a new vfiler including the entire cifs setup shall be fully automated in the background.

To create a vfiler on the CLI is a quite simple task. I found a good example here.

But I have not found a way to automate the "cifs setup" - including the addition of the new vfiler into an AD.

I'd appreciate any hint!

Kind regards,
