Setting Up a Oracle Solaris SMB Server to Manage and Share Files

The ability to share files between your Oracle Solaris and Windows systems is very important. You can configure an Oracle Solaris 11.1 SMB file server to run as a standalone server (workgroup mode) or to run in an existing Windows environment (domain mode). Such a server can provide access to SMB shares for both Oracle Solaris and Windows systems. This chapter describes how to configure an Oracle Solaris server, create and manage SMB shares, and customize the server and shares for your environment.

Currently, the SMB service runs only in the global zone.

This chapter covers the following topics:

For a high-level overview of the SMB server configuration process, see Configuring the SMB Server - Process Overview.

Note - Common Internet File System (CIFS) is an enhanced version of the SMB protocol, which allows SMB clients to access files and resources from the SMB server. The terms CIFS and SMB can be considered interchangeable.
