I am running Netapp 9.0P3. I have a need to use a non Active Directory user (local user). I have defined a local user on the filer. I go into the Windows Security tab on the share and select Edit to add a new user. I select the IP address of the filer and enter the local user name but Windows gives me a message the user can not be found. Does anyone have an idea on how to make this work or if this is possible? I am working with netapp support but the resource I am working with is unavailable until Monday. Thanks
Once you've created the user using the "cifs users-and-groups local-user create" command you should then be able to browse it using computer management (compmgmt.msc) EG
From a command prompt type compmgmt.msc to open computer management, Right click on "Computer management" and select "connect to another computer" and type the CIFS vserver name and click ok then browse the local users and groups. Is the user account you created visable? EG
Hope this helps?
