CIFS Service Documentation, Troubleshooting and Diagnostics (December 4, 2008)

One of our design goals was to make it easy to use the Solaris CIFS service but operating system interoperability can be a bewilderingly large subject area and it's always useful to have references on installation, configuration, troubleshooting and gathering diagnostic information.  If you're looking for information, check out the CIFS Service project pages:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/cifs-server
http://opensolaris.org/os/project/cifs-server/docs

  • Getting Started Guide

  • Administration Guide

  • Troubleshooting Guide

If you suspect you have a configuration problem, try the cifs-chkcfg script:

http://opensolaris.org/os/project/cifs-server/files/cifs-chkcfg

If you'd like to discuss a configuration or operational problem, it's highly likely that we'll ask for details of your setup, much of which can be obtained using the cifs-gendiag script:

http://opensolaris.org/os/project/cifs-server/files/cifs-gendiag

cifs-gendiag obtains information from the following sources:

  • sharemgr show -vp

  • sharectl get smb

  • smbadm list

  • zfs get all

  • /etc/krb5/krb5.conf

  • /etc/pam.conf

  • /etc/resolv.conf

Environment information (client OS, version and service packs) and network captures (wireshark, netmon)‏ and are also extremely useful in troubleshooting problems.

If it turns out there's a bug or you would like to search for existing bugs, change requests (CR) or enhancement requests (RFE), our bugster categories on http://bugs.opensolaris.org/ are:

  • solaris->kernel->cifs
    - smbsrv kernel module or SMB/CIFS protocol issues

  • solaris->utility->cifs
     - CIFS Service utility programs, libraries, NDR RPC
