To properly install and configure CIFS, ensure that the following prerequisites are met:
The Universal Password includes the ability to create password policies. It also removes the need to maintain two separate passwords for CIFS users.
Stop all the running Samba daemons before installing CIFS. Use the following commands:
The, , and have the rights to read the eDirectory CIFS attributes under ( and ). Hence if these virtual servers are hosted in any of these three nodes, the configuration is read by the CIFS service in the corresponding node.
The, , and have rights to read the eDirectory CIFS attributes under ( and ). Hence if these virtual servers are hosted in any of these three nodes, the configuration is read by the CIFS service in the corresponding node.
If the virtual server requires to be migrated across the branches, then the cifs proxy users have to be given explicit rights on those branches such that the CIFS attribute information can be read.
The attributes for which the cifs proxy user requires rights are, nfapCIFSServername, nfapCIFSComment, nfapCIFSShares, and nfapCIFSAttach. These attributes must have read, write, and compare rights. If the rights are defined on the branch (preferable), then the inherit rights also have to be provided.
In this example, ifis to be hosted on node server c, then must be provided access to read the attributes of . The rights for the above mentioned attributes can be provided at for . Hence the same rights hold good for hosting too.
