CIFS services time out


Hi there,


I'm currently setting up a CIFS services on the NetApp FAS8020.


I've so far configured everything as per the quick setup guide. However, it seems that i can't ping the CIFS LIF IP after the services run awhile. To recover, I need to either disable and renable back the NIC port ot start stop the CIFS services.


Any help ? Its seems like the CIFS services timeout after no usage
