3.6 Novell CIFS File Access

Novell CIFS is supported to give CIFS users access to the data on DST shadow volume pairs that are built with NSS volumes. CIFS users automatically see a merged view of the data by accessing a CIFS share on the primary volume. For information about configuring and managing Novell CIFS, see the OES 2015 SP1: Novell CIFS for Linux Administration Guide. For planning information, see Novell CIFS.

Novell CIFS is supported as an alternative to the Novell Samba solution. Novell CIFS does not require ShadowFS, FUSE, or LUM.
