Chapter 1

Windows Interoperability (Overview)

This administration guide provides the information needed to integrate an Oracle Solaris Server Message Block (SMB) server into an existing Windows environment and also describes the SMB client, which enables you to mount SMB shares on Oracle Solaris systems.

Windows clients can access SMB shares from an SMB server as if they were made available from a Windows server. This guide focuses only on the information required to integrate an SMB server and how to use the SMB client. Windows topics are only covered when those topics affect the integration of an SMB server into the Windows environment.

This chapter covers the following topics:

Note - The Oracle Solaris OS provides a Server Message Block (SMB) protocol server and client implementation that includes support for numerous SMB dialects including NT LM 0.12 and Common Internet File System (CIFS). The terms CIFS and SMB can be considered interchangeable.

Up-to-date troubleshooting information is available on the Oracle Solaris SMB Service wiki.

For information about installing the SMB server packages, see Getting Started With the Oracle Solaris SMB Service wiki on the Oracle Solaris SMB Service wiki.
