We had a NetApp cluster volume which is configured as CIFS share and security limited to some domain users.
It was mounted in an aix server as NFS mount and used to transfer the files to the CIFS share.
It was stopped working saying that permission denied to the folder in Unix end. We haven't made any changes in NetApp and not sure where it broke.
1)Unix user (or root) couldn't able to access it.
2)I tried to create local Unix id and in NetApp Unix user with same as domain user name, then i can able to access the folder.
but i couldn't use any local Unix user(or root ) to access the folders.
Please let me know how to make Unix local user orroot to access the CIFS folder. I tried name mapping in NetApp but it's not working.
My export policy will be like:
Vserver: vserver1 Policy Name: POLICY1 Rule Index: 1 Access Protocol: nfs List of Client Match Hostnames, IP Addresses, Netgroups, or Domains: 0.0.0.0/0 RO Access Rule: any RW Access Rule: any User ID To Which Anonymous Users Are Mapped: 65534 Superuser Security Types: any Honor SetUID Bits in SETATTR: true Allow Creation of Devices: true
