Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

(OP)
I would like my users that log into a Samba server to be able to get read only access to their Novell drives.

Can anyone direct me on where to start?

Thanks

Look into using Native File Access

RE: Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

You need to load the nlm that allows "windows" access (Sorry its been a while and i've forgotten what it is but its not too hard to figure out).

One that is loaded then you can create a user that the samba's can log in with and restrict that login ID to read only perms on the volumes you want them to have access to.

 

RE: Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

What Jim is talking about is CIFS (Common Internet File System).  It is the protocol Windows uses for file access, and it is a part of NFAP (Native File Access Protocol).  It is built in, most likely you have the NLM already running cause it is default when NetWare 6.5 is installed (unless you clean up your autoexec.ncf after a server setup).

RE: Connecting to Novell volumes from Samba

Hi Brent, thanks yes I am certainly getting rusty.

Provogeek, if you don't have these entries this should help you out.

In your autoexec.ncf file (From console load edit autoexec.ncf) put this entry below your IPX bindings

# -- Added by CIFS Install --
CIFSSTRT.NCF
# -- End of CIFS Install --

And if you don't have this file, or the data in the file differs from this then edit CIFSSTRT.NCF

# -- Load CIFS NLMs --
LOAD CIFS.NLM
%if !loaded cifsprox.nlm   then cmd LOAD CIFSPROX.NLM
%if !loaded nfap4nrm.nlm   then cmd LOAD nfap4nrm.nlm

You also can edit these in the SYS:\SYSTEM folder and you would either type the commands or just reboot the server.

Hope i'm close to right and hope this helps!

Thanks!

Jim
