CIFS Error in iManager

NW 6.5 SP3

In iManager when trying to access the CIFS/AFP module the error is returned
"Error: The CIFS configuration information is not stored in eDirectory."

NFA is set up and configured (according to Console1) and we are able to
access shares from XP-Pro only workstations (no NW client) but there is no
way to manage it - Basically, we need to change the workgroup name. What's
up?

Thanks in advance.

What happens if you use ConsoleOne to make your changes?

Re: CIFS Error in iManager

Seems to work OK from C1 except - and this may be a different issue, when I
restart the server it still comes up as "Workgroup" instead of the new
workgroup name. If I cifsstop/cifsstrt it is then ok - shows the new
workgroup name in Windows network neighborhood. Other issue with using C1 is
then you need to have the Netware client loaded on the workstation. Not
always what is wanted.

It might be the same issue... do you have a file called cifs.cfg in sys:etc?
If yes, stop cifs, rename or delete the file, verify your config in
ConsoleOne, and then restart the server -- does the wrong workgroup name still
appear? Can you use iManager now?

Re: CIFS Error in iManager

I'll have to try that. I did look at the file earlier and it does define the
workgroup name as "WORKGROUP" but there was also a note in that file that
said to not change anything in the file as CIFS was controlled by eDirectory
now and this file had no effect on it. I'll get back to you after I try it
in the evening. Thanks.

Re: CIFS Error in iManager

OK - Sorry this took so long. Renaming the cifs.cfg has no effect. I did
find that if I rename the group name in C1 from "MYGROUP" back to
"WORKGROUP" (or anything else), stop/start cifs the group is now
"WORKGROUP". I then change it back to "MYGROUP", stop/start and it's now
"MYGROUP" in Windows Explorer. However, iManager still gives the error
"Error: The CIFS configuration information is not stored in eDirectory."
making it impossible to manage the CIFS properties from iManager. Not a huge
problem if I'm on site as C1 is a workaround but problematic if I need to
add/modify/delete a share remotely using iManager. DSRepair doesn't seem to
help the issue. Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Bruce

This is really looking like a problem with iManager and you might get
better results in the iManager forum, if you don't mind posting it
there.

I am curious though, if editing a user and you click on NMAS Login
Methods, what login methods are you able to select from? Oh, and what
version of iManager are you using? (Be sure to mention it in the iMan
forum too.)

Re: CIFS Error in iManager

No methods are available in iManager, all of the installed sequences are
there, though.
iManager v 2.0.2

Will repost in iManager forum. Thanks for your help.

Hopefully eDirectory password is an option. 🙂 If so, but there are no
others, then you're seeing the same as I do, which I have Novell
looking at, and which I think is a bug in iManager. Thanks for the
feedback on that, and best of luck with your iManager issue.
