To access CIFS servers running on an OES 11 SP2 server, ensure that your setup meets the following basic minimum requirements:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3.
For details, see OES 11 SP2: Installation Guide.
Windows XP SP2 and SP3
Mac Client support from 10.6.7
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 onwards (CIFS file system only)
Use the following checklist to verify CIFS dependencies before proceeding:
All Novell CIFS users must be in eDirectory. Linux-only users are not supported.
Novell CIFS supports only Novell Storage Services (NSS) volumes.
NCP should be up and running in order for Novell CIFS to function properly.
If any CIFS user objects are on eDirectory servers running 8.7 or earlier, ensure that you upgrade the server using the Security Services 2.0.6 patch.
