We have users on Window and Macs and users on Linux....all want to upload and download via CIFS or NFS, but the RHEL based HPC is NFS......so it would be best for them to have both protocols to the same space.


Also we use AD for Windows and are looking at LDAP/freeIPA for Linux, the HPC and maybe MACs, can Bluearc use multiple (at least the first two, but we also have a Mac LDAP!) centralised authentication mechanisims at the same time and on the same filespace?
