I think I'm not much clear. Well, this is what the scenario is:
Say, I have a user on ABC.COM/user1 (Where ABC.COM is my AD server and user1 is one of the users in that AD) and I have created an CIFS export named "Exp1" and created a file from Windows machine in this export, with file name as "f1.txt".
This is how my shares looks like with full access to Everyone:-
everyone / Full Control
Now, what I want to do is to set this ABC.COM/user1 as the owner of this "f1.txt" file.
I can access this "Exp1" from my Windows machine and I can change file permissions from Windows, but not file ownership.
I don't even know how to traverse to different directories and locations in NetApp sim.
cd command does not work, neither chown.chmod.
I have enabled walf.root_only_chown, but I didn't find any way to change the ownership of that file.
Hi Pragya, this is how my owners tab look like. I don't see any other users and group. One more thing I wanted to ask, What should I enter when installation prompts, "Where is the filer located?" - I entered my computer's IP address.
I had tried changing ownership of file in windows2008 R2, it worked for me , Note: My machine was in same domain as of cifs domain.
It seems that your machine is in different domain than cifs domain and it doesn't support editing ownership by adding 'other user and group' like window2008R2 does. (note: I am observing this behavior in windows xp)
you might give a try by putting your machine on same domain as cifs and log in as your domain user. or you may try with the windows 2008 in same domain.
The answer for your second question "Where is the filer located", is the physical location of the your NetApp Simulator. it can be geographical location,location in building etc.
Finally, I'm connected to the AD server after changing the timezones everywhere. It was giving me an error when prompting for Password on Administrator@AD.COM. It kept on asking password, though I entered accurately.
Now after creating a CIFS export, when I try to mount the export on the AD machine it gave me an error of which is :
Also, one weird thing I observed was that, when I start the simulator it shows time zone as GMT, but after few operations it shows EST. Where is this GMT timezone set? I changed timezone everywhere to EST for New York, but still it's showing GMT. Below is the screenshot for this timezone conflict:
I am not sure about this, you can try setting timezone and date properly in host machine where you are running your simulator , data ontap simulator picks up time details from the host machine.Keep the host machine time in sync with the DC.
Rerun the cifs setup after time details are updated in your simulator.
Basic question, is your simulator joined to the AD domain? If not, you just have to run the cifs setup:
toaster> cifs terminate
toaster> cifs setup
And follow the instructions, be sure that your filer has the proper DNS and that it has the clock synchronized with your Active Directory server, no more than 5 minutes skew, you can set that like this:
toaster> options timed.servers your.ad.server.ip
toaster> options timed.max_skew 4m
toaster> options timed.proto ntp
toaster> options timed.enable on
I have noticed in some filers that you have to set the clock manually first, then enable ntp sync, if you don't do it it won't sync.
