Configuring CIFS server status for standalone mode

To check the CIFS server status

  1. To check the status of the CIFS server, enter the following:

    CIFS> server status

    Be default, security is set to user, the required setting for standalone mode. The following example shows that security was previously set to ads.

    For example:

    CIFS> server status
    CIFS Status on sfs_01 : ONLINE
    CIFS Status on sfs_02 : ONLINE
    
    Homedirfs                 : fs1
    Security                  : ads
    Domain membership status  : Disabled
    Domain                    : SYMANTECDOMAIN.COM
    Domain Controller         : SYMSERVER
    Domain User               : administrator
    Clustering Mode           : normal
  2. If the server is running, enter the following:

    CIFS> server stop
    Stopping CIFS Server.....Success.

To check the security setting

  1. Check the current settings before setting security, enter the following:

    CIFS> show

    For example:

                        Name  Value
                        ----  -----
                netbios name  ctdb
             netbios aliases 
                   ntlm auth  yes
       allow trusted domains  no
                   homedirfs
                    aio size  1024
               idmap backend  rid:10000-1000000
                   workgroup  SYMANTECDOMAIN
                    security  ads
                      Domain		SYMANTECDOMAIN.COM
                 Domain user  administrator
           Domain Controller  SYMSERVER
            Clustering Mode   normal
    
    Note: In the FileStore 5.7 P1 release, CIFS> netbios aliases were deprecated in both the 
    FileStore CLI as well as the FileStore GUI.
  2. To set security to user, enter the following:

    CIFS> set security user
    Global option updated. Note: Restart the CIFS server.

To start the CIFS service in standalone mode

  1. To start the service in standalone mode, enter the following:

    CIFS: server start
    Starting CIFS Server.....Success.
  2. To display the new settings, enter the following:

    CIFS> show

    For example:

                        Name  Value
                        ----  -----
                netbios name  mycluster
             netbios aliases
                   ntlm auth  yes
       allow trusted domains  no
                   homedirfs
                    aio size  1024
               idmap backend  rid:10000-1000000
                   workgroup  SYMANTECDOMAIN
                    security  user
                      Domain		SYMANTECDOMAIN.COM
                 Domain user  administrator
           Domain Controller  SYMSERVER
           Clustering Mode    normal
  3. To make sure that the server is running in standalone mode, enter the following:

    CIFS> server status

    For example:

    CIFS> server status
    CIFS Status on sfs_01 : ONLINE
    CIFS Status on sfs_02 : ONLINE
    
    Homedirfs                 : fs1
    Security                  : user
    Clustering Mode           : normal

The CIFS service is now running in standalone mode.
