I recently created a cifs share to access from my windows server 2003. When i go to map network drive and provide the directory windows asks for login credentials. I tried the default root (of netapp ofcourse) but it says unsuccessful login. I created another user on netapp within administrator group and the same thing happened.
Thanks for the reply. The result of cifs domaininfo was
Filer NETAPPSIM is not a member of a domain.
Also i was not asked for the creation of CIFS local administrator. The volume and qtree both have ntfs type security. As i said all I did was followed the steps given here https://communities.netapp.com/thread/21466. Also, I think i missed a few steps while performing cifs setup.
