SMB Share Options

You can include SMB share options with the share add, share change, and share create commands.

Option Conventions

When entering options, use the following conventions:

  • Separate multiple options by a comma.
  • For options that can have multiple values, separate the values by a space.

Example Command: Specify a write list and admin users for myshare

> share add smb myshare /stornext/snfs1/myshare write list=james doris, admin users = sysadmin

Default Options

If you do not provide case sensitive, writable, or public options for SMB shares, default values are set to the following:

  • case sensitive = auto
  • writable = yes
  • public = no

Caution: The Appliance Controller manages the smb.conf and /etc/exports files for StorNext NAS. Any edits made directly to either of these files will be lost when the Appliance Controller is restarted, or when changes are made using any of the share commands.
