CIFS permissions

Dear All,

We have a user that needs read only access on all the CIFS shares we have. What we only know is to add the user on each CIFS shared volume permission. This will take some time because we have more than 100 shared volumes. Is there any other way to grant this permission without individually adding the user on all CIFS shares like adding on some predefined roles with readonly access?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello @EdwinSP 

 

You can set export-policy for that specific user. Check the link below for additional information:

Hi @hmoubara 

 

I checked on the link you provided but cannot find a way to set my read-only access requirement for a particular user.  I can only  how for a particular client IP (-clientmatch)

Would you mind if you can give me an example.

 

Thanks in advance.
