We have a CIFS share from a FAS 8020, ontap 8.3.2.
We are unable to mount this cifs share from a redhat 6.5.
The cifs works fine from all windows computers.
Any ideea will be highly apreciated.
See The Solution
Did you configure the /etc/usermap.cfg inorder to access your CIFS in UNIX environment. Please refer to the link on how to access CIFS share in UNIX environment.
Do let us know if you face any issue further.
What's the security style of the volume (unix, ntfs, mixed)?
- If Unix what are the unix permissions on the volume
- vol show -volume <vol-name> -fields unix-permissions, security-style
Have you configured user mappings?
- Is the unix/linux user mapped to Winodows user properly
Do you see any errors in secd?
- event log show
If it is c-mode then you need to create an export-policy and export-policy rule on the same storage pat where you have created cifs share. After that you have to create user mappings. Please follow the below steps to configure the user mappings.
vserver name-mapping create -vserver svm-edc-cifs -direction win-unix -position 1 -pattern demo\\administrator -replacement root
vserver name-mapping create -vserver svm-edc-cifs -direction unix-win -position 1 -pattern root -replacement demo\\administrator
Well ... actually the linux guy simply was using the wrong user to mount 😞
Thanks for all your suggestions
