The ability to share files between your Windows and Oracle Solaris systems is very important. This book provides you with the information you need to integrate an Oracle Solaris Server Message Block (SMB) server into an existing Windows environment. To integrate the Oracle Solaris OS server, you must configure identity mapping between Windows and Oracle Solaris OS systems and then configure the Oracle Solaris SMB server. When the Oracle Solaris SMB server is integrated, Windows systems can access files on the Oracle Solaris OS server by using the SMB protocol. You can also use the Oracle Solaris SMB client to access files on a Windows or Oracle Solaris SMB server.
