I have a odd issue that I am hoping someone can help me with. I am using System Manager 1.1.R1 (22.214.171.1244) to apply permissions to a Cifs share which is located in a Windows 2003 Active Directory Domain.
Through the System Manager Active Directory search window it only finds user objects but will not display group objects. When I just check groups in the filter settings and click find now no results are displayed. However, I can get results when I select users.
When I open the native active directory snap-in it displays groups and users as expected. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Can you kindly shed some light on what my issues might be?
This is apparently a bug in system manager. It should be fixed in the next version (2.0).
Meanwhile you can use the CLI interface ("cifs access" command) or the computer management MMC plugin (start->run, "compmgmt.msc", right-click your hostname and select "manage other server" or whatever it is called, enter the hostname of your filer and modify your shares there)
