Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Just checking, but have you run a "CIFS Status" on the 3240. Could you post the output of the cifs shares?>

You shoud be prompted for authentication if you arent a local admin.

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Hi Paul,

Yes, I can access other shares on the filer from my windows 7 pc. So I set "options wafl.nt_admin_priv_map_to_root on" on the filer as I am the admin. Still not able to access the C$ or etc$ on the filer. It says network not found. I cannot see C$ or etc$ in Shares from OnCommand system manager.

For my other filer, I am able to access \\Filer_Name\C$ from my PC and if I connect to my 2nd filer through OnCommand system manager, I can see C$ and etc$ shares at the path /vol/vol0 but I cannot see that in the affected filer?

Thanks _ AG

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Hi  ,

If previously you have successfully  accessed the /etc directory from your workstation .

If this is occuring first time this could be due to incorrect permission set during cifs setup .

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Hi Ashwani,

I was never able to access etc share on this particular filer. On another file, I am able to access the etc share. So should I run the CIFS setup again? Will it affect my existing shares on the filer? There are production shares on the filer.

Thanks -AG

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Hi ,

Can you please share the output of command

filer> cifs shares (if you are managing the filer via  any command line interface )

If by any other tool you need to check the permission of the account u are using to access these shares .

Thanks ,

Ashwin

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Agreed - Output of "cifs shares" would be useful

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

Missing license cause this kind of error. Check CIFS license!

Re: Unable to access /etc on NetApp filer

anyone hitting this problem, please make sure you are not connecting to the Service Provider IP instead of the filer itself.


Verify CIFS license as well and verify correct user account logins and then *poof* magic it works ;-)
