What We're Reading: Alan Wright and Others on CIFS in Solaris

 

CIFS ... in Solaris  "That's an interesting concept; one that has evoked a variety of emotions within Sun." - Alan Wright

Dealing with Windows SIDs in Solaris  - "The CIFS server project integrated into ONNV / OpenSolaris in build 77. This is a very important milestone for Solaris, which now has a fully integrated native SMB server running in the kernel."Fully integrated" implies many good things..." - Nico Williams

FISH -n- CIFS - "There is motivation when skeptics like to preach that there is no way <substitute here> is going to happen.  Examples include come from behind victories in sports, new discoveries in science and cures for disease.  Good intentions are one thing, but following through on those intentions is a bit more difficult." - Bob Porras

Solaris and CIFS - "Our CIFS implementation is certainly complementary to our work with the Samba community. The advantages of an in-kernel implementation is that we can provide much tighter integration of CIFS with other Solaris features, like ZFS and with the upcoming Solaris virus scan service based on the ICAP protocol. After all, who wants better Windows file services without better virus scanning?" - Marc Hamilton
