CIFS login problems

I am running OES 11.1 Patchlevel 1 on top of SLES 11 SP2 which is a brand new install. I have set up the CIFS share in iManager and set up a Microsoft workgroup called 'server_w'. If I try to log into the share I get an error of invalid user name or password. Checking in the cifs.log file I see an error 'Loading of NCSSDK library failed, error: libncssdk.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.' From a google search it appears that this is related to Novell cluster services. Is this needed for CIFS? I have universal password policy configured and after assigning a user to a universal password policy I can log into the OES server with the Novell client OK so I know the Universal password policy is set up correctly. If I use the CASAcli -l command to list the credential sets, I see 3: common-proxy-casa, novell-cifs, afp-casa. However, I don't see any of these accounts in eDir. Shouldn't I? If these are supposed to be user objects in eDir, where should they be placed in the tree and what rights should be assigned to them? Thanks, dan

What does 'novcifs -sl' and 'novcifs -sln %sharename%' show?
What does 'novcifs -o' show?
Is the cifs context set to find the user?
Is the 'Cifs Default Policy' assigned to the user mentioned?

About the cluster related library: cifs is cluster independent, but
often used in conjunction with clustering, so *maybe* the library is
needed, even if there`s no clustering. I don't know

Thanks, Tom, for the reply. Novcifs -sl shows the shares I wouild expct to see. _Admin, IPC$ then a couple shares that I have specified. Novecifs -sl {sharename} shows informatino about the share like: Sahre Name: : DataWin Share Type : Disk Directory Tree Filesystem Stype : NSS Comment : Abosolute Path : /media/nss/XXX/DataWin Share Path : /DataWin Trustee Status : Ready Server Name : GEORGE_W Novcifs -o shows taht the authentication is local, LMCompatibilityLevel is 0, SMB Signature is Disabled. among other things. I wasn't sure how to set these in iManager. I wanted to set the shares up with the server as a member of a Workgroup. However, I am in an AD environment. Should I try to make it a member of the domain? Yes the CIFS context is set to the same OU that the user is in. How can ai check to see if teh CIFS default Policy is assigned to the user? Thanks, Dan

That sounds fishy. If you really have a workgroup created that has the
same name as your server, that's a loud cry for problems.

Sorry, I mis-spoke. I meant that the CIFS server name was server_w. The workgroup name is something like wrkgrp. One thing that is strange is that if I try to browse the network from a Windows 7 machine, I don't see the workgroup name or the CIFS server name. I do see other Windows servers as well as the OES servers. Dan

Today I've mounted an OES11SP1 Cifs share from W2008R2 without any problems.

@Dan: Could you please provide the syntx you're using?
Don't try e.g 'net use * \\servername\share', instead use a fixed drive
letter like 'net use v: \\servername\share'

In my experience: don't try without providing a username, because
W2008R2 then will use 'Administrator' for authentication. What should
work is:

net use v: \\servername\share /user:username
