Network and Storage Protocols

cifs setup terminates suddenly without any message.

Hi All,

 

I have been running cifs setup in a vFiler on a 6280 running 8.2.3P2 7-mode and it terminates unexpectedly and without message after selecting either option for "Multiprotocol" or "NTFS-only" as show below:

 

filer> vfiler run vfilername cifs setup

...

...

...

(1) Multiprotocol filer
(2) NTFS-only filer

Selection (1-2)? [1]: 1
        CIFS requires local /etc/passwd and /etc/group files and default files
        will be created.  The default passwd file contains entries for 'root',
        'pcuser', and 'nobody'.

filer>

 

I manually created /etc/passwd and /etc/group files and then retried the cifs setup. I've never had to do that before. Does anyone know why?

 

Cheers, Renton.

Hi,

 

This is because CIFS is not configured while configuring vfiler and configured later, then /etc/passwd is not created on the root of the vfiler volume.
You can either setup CIFS while creating vfiler or need to manually create /etc/passwd in root volume of the vfiler

 

 

Thanks
