cifs share not accessile with unix security style.




I have one volumes created with Unix security style.

I am able to map with root user from Redhat linux system.


But not able to access from windows system. uer Authentical is locally. I have created windows user named SVM1\\netapp & created one linux user named linux.


Mapped windwos user netapp to linux user linux but not able to access.


Can someone help on this.






IMHO, if you are creating a mixed protocol share, the permissions should be controlled from within windows.  This is standard practice in my mind.


If the volume is set to unix security style, than the share will be everyone full and you should be able to browse without issues.




Access to everyone is not woriking.



Therer are many volumes created with same configuration and working fine.


i have only didi difference is that created new user locally named with svm1\Netapp and unix user named linux.
