18.9 Novell CIFS Implementation and Maintenance

To use the Novell implementation of CIFS file services on your OES server, you must install the service by using the instructions in the OES 11 SP2: Installation Guide (for a new installation) or install it after the initial OES installation, as explained in Installing CIFS after the OES 11 SP2 Installation in the OES 11 SP2: Novell CIFS for Linux Administration Guide.

18.9.1 Implementing Novell CIFS File Services

NOTE:If you are new to OES, we recommend the OES 11 SP2: Getting Started with OES 11 and Virtualized NetWare for an introduction to creating and working with eDirectory objects and OES file services, including Novell CIFS.

All eDirectory users can access the CIFS file services on an OES 11 SP2 server as they would any Windows workgroup server.

For instructions on implementing Novell CIFS, see Planning and Implementing CIFS in the OES 11 SP2: Novell CIFS for Linux Administration Guide.

18.9.2 Maintaining Novell CIFS File Services

Information on maintaining your CIFS installation is found in the OES 11 SP2: Novell CIFS for Linux Administration Guide.
