I have a question regarding HNAS EVS best practice.What is best practice when it comes to setting up CIFS? Do most HNAS customers setup one CIFS name per EVS, or do they setup several CIFS and than just manage the rights?
Generally speaking, one CIFS server is configured per EVS.
Within the same EVS, the shares cannot be managed separately by which name the EVS is being accessed by. All the shares appear to all the names within the EVS. Additionally, the EVS name has to be in the *same* Windows domain.
One potential reason to have multiple CIFS names is if you had hardcoded WINS or DNS names and wanted to keep the same names.
