Some new features

A new set of features have been recently added to sharemgr (ON build 103). These have been long pending RFEs for both NFS and SMB.


New properties available for NFS:



  • none=<access-list>
    Any host that is attempting access that is found in the access-list will be denied all access.

  • root_mapping=uid
    Any root user that is allowed access via the root=<access-list> property will have the root UID mapped to uid on the server

  • charset=<access-list>
    Any host found in the access-list will be assumed to be using the specified charset and file names and paths will be converted between charset and UTF8 on the server.


New properties available for SMB:



  • none=<access-list>
    Any host that is attempting access that is found in the access-list will be denied all access.

  • ro=<access-list>
    Any host found in the access-list will have read-only access

  • rw=<access-list>
    Any host found in the access-list will have read-write access


Note that the new SMB properties are the same as those of the same name in NFS.  Details of all the properties will be included in the sharemgr man page. Adding these properties to SMB and NFS provides functionality that is present in the StorEdge 5210/5310 products.


Note that the <access-list> is the same as has been part of NFS for a long time. It is a list of hosts and/or netgroups. The sharemgr(1m) man page and share_nfs(1) man page describe them in detail.
