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


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.
