Manage NetApp CIFS Shares via Windows MMC

terryzolinski

Hello,

I would like to hand-off creation of shares to windows admins. When I try to create a share using Computer Management it says the path is invalid. I also cannot browse to select the folder.

When I use the path structure of a share that was created within System Manager, it says "Type a valid path..."

When I click browse I can't see past the CIFS Server root. No directories.

I'm just wondering if others are able to do this? CIFS appears to be setup properly, it's just the creation of shares that is an issue.

When I use the path structure of a share that was created within System Manager, it says "Type a valid path..."

Thanks in advance.

I'm running 8.2 P3. Guess I have to buck up and deal with share creation for the time being.

Thank you for this.

How and where have you defined the permissions on the SAN?
