Data ONTAP 8.x 7-Mode CIFS --forcegroup

penangmis

We tried to user the --forcegroup options when trying to create a CIFS shared.

The  /vol/DataLog_NFS_vol volume and qtree are create with UNIX style and shared to other linux workstation.

 

cifs shares -add test123 /vol/DataLog_NFS_vol -forcegroup testgroup

 

whoever we get are getting the error:

testgroup: unknown group

 

We have this testgroup create under our linux server already.

 

May I know where is this --forcegroup  <groupname> refer too ?

 

We even tried

--forcegroup "domain\testgroup"

--forcegroup  Users

 

Nothing seems to work.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.
