Linux server need to mount on the cifs shares. if i add the linux sevrer ip address in the cifs share configuration list, it will effect the cifs share users?
please expalin how to proceed.
Normally, for CIFS-shares, the SMU GUI "Access Configuration" list ( aka host / ip based access control list ) is empty and all NAS access control decisions for that CIFS-Share are USER based , not HOST based.
If, for example, you were to add these 2 entries to the "Access Configuration" list 192.168.0.101(rw) potter.corp.com(rw)then ONLY access attempts from these 2 hosts could possibly succeed.( access from these 2 hosts would still be required to meet USER-based SHARE-level and FILE-and-DIRECTORY level access requirements )So, if today, your "Access Configuration" list is blank ( no host based controls ) and you add the IP addresses of some Linux systems to the list, then, yes you will deny access to Windows CIFS clients that currently access the share.
Normally , I use NFS to provide file access for Linux systems.
If mixed platform ( Windows + Linux ) access is needed for a directory-tree, I will usually create aCIFS-SMB "front door" ( CIFS-share) and an NFS "front door" ( NFS volume) to that directory-tree.
IMPORTANT: getting "mixed platform" file-sharing to work nicely is possible; however, getting hosts fromboth platforms "through the front door" ( accessing the mount point ) is just the first piece of the puzzle.
While I only use NFS for my production Linux access needs, I have on-occasion, helped people ( with Linux workstations ) mount SMB/CIFS shares using USER-based means. I will find my notes for doing this.
