To access CIFS servers running on an OES 11 SP1 server ensure you meet the following basic minimum requirements:
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 Support Pack 1 or later.
Same as the OES 11 SP1 hardware requirements. For details, see OES 11 SP1: Installation Guide.
Windows XP SP2 and SP3
Mac Client support from 10.5 onwards
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 for Novell CIFS to function properly.
If your eDirectory replica is stored on an eDirectory server earlier than 8.8.3, ensure you upgrade the server using the Security Services 2.0.6 patch.
