CIFS search


What's the correct CIFS command to see all files open from a specfic cifs session...?   Can I list all files for all sessions?



Pointing Windows Computer Manager at it works too.

Right click on at the top level and select connect to another computer

Select shared folders etc


hi, using the command "cifs sessions" will give you the output of all sessions to the appliance, including computer, user, shares and files...

Alternatively another good method is to use computer management from a Windows Server, and connect to the Filer/Appliance as the computer.

You will need the correct credentials to authenticate, or have a windows account that has admin access to the Filer. Once connected, browse to the shares or open files and voila.
