This section describes enhancements and changes to Novell CIFS for Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) 11.
It is now possible to restart CIFS service in a cluster setup when cluster resources are active.
You can now use the monitor command with the rcnovell-cifs script to check the CIFS server status. When rcnovell-cifs monitor is invoked, it returns the status of CIFS if it is already running otherwise (dead/not running) it starts a new instance and returns the status. For more information, see Configuring CIFS with Novell Cluster Services for an NSS File System in the OES 11: Novell CIFS for Linux Administration Guide.
