Tools for troubleshooting SFTP access to CIFS shares?


I've been asked to setup SFTP access to a FAS filer running ONTAP 7.3.2.

I've been successful so far, getting the user added to /etc/passwd, getting a test preshared-key setup, setting up usermap,etc.

But once logged in over SFTP, the user cannot write to the desired qtree. Aside from looking at the access info in wcc, are there any commands or tools you;d recommend for figuring out why access is denied?





Displays the security settings on a file or directory. Wildcards are permitted.

fsecurity show [-v <volume>|-s <share>] <path> [<options>]

fsecurity show -v <volume> -i <inum> [<options>]


     -c = Include security descriptor control information

     -d = Include directories in wildcard searches

     -l = Disable name lookups

     -x = Expand mask values

this might be ur answer
