Configuring SMB Using the BUI

Initial Configuration

Initial configuration of the appliance may be completed using the BUI or the CLI and should take less than 20 minutes. Initial Setup may also be performed again later using the Maintenance > System contexts of the BUI or CLI. Initial configuration will take you through the following BUI steps, in general.

  1. Configure Network Devices, Datalinks, and Interfaces.
  2. Create interfaces using the Datalink add or Interface image:Add item icons or by using drag-and-drop of devices to the datalink or interface lists.
  3. Set the desired properties and click the Apply button to add them to the list.
  4. Set each interface to active or standby as appropriate.
  5. Click the Apply button at the top of the page to commit your changes.
  6. Configure DNS.
  7. Provide the base domain name.
  8. Provide the IP address of at least one server that is able to resolve hostname and server records in the Active Directory portion of the domain namespace.
  9. Configure NTP authentication keys to ensure clock synchronization.
  10. Click the image:Add item icon to add a new key.
  11. Specify the number, type, and private value for the new key and apply the changes. The key appears as an option next to each specified NTP server.
  12. Associate the key with the appropriate NTP server and apply the changes. To ensure clock synchronization, configure the appliance and the SMB clients to use the same NTP server.
  13. Specify Active Directory as the directory service for users and groups.
  14. Set the directory domain.
  15. Click the Apply button to commit your changes.
  16. Configure a storage pool.
  17. Click the image:Add item icon to add a new pool.
  18. Set the pool name.
  19. On the "Allocate and verify storage" screen, configure the JBOD allocation for the storage pool. JBOD allocation may be none, half or all. If no JBODs are detected, check your JBOD cabling and power.
  20. Click the Commit button to advance to the next screen.
  21. On the "Configure Added Storage" screen, select the desired data profile. Each is rated in terms of availability, performance and capacity. Use these ratings to determine the best configuration for your business needs.
  22. Click the Commit button to activate the configuration.
  23. Configure Remote Support.
  24. If the appliance is not directly connected to the internet, configure an HTTP proxy through which the remote support service may communicate with Oracle.
  25. Enter your Online Account user name and password. A privacy statement will be displayed for your review.
  26. Choose which of your inventory teams to register with. The default team for each account is the same as the account user name, prefixed with a '$'.
  27. Commit your initial configuration changes.

Active Directory Configuration

  1. Create an account for the appliance in the Active Directory domain. Refer to Active Directory documentation for detailed instructions.
  2. On the Configuration > Services > Active Directory screen, click the Join Domain button.
  3. Specify the Active Directory domain, administrative user, administrative password and click the Apply button to commit the changes.

Project and Share Configuration

  1. Create a Project.
  2. On the Shares screen, click the image:Panel open icon to expand the Projects panel.
  3. Click the Add... link to add a new project.
  4. Specify the Project name and apply the change.
  5. Select the new project from the Projects panel.
  6. Click the image:Add item icon to add a filesystem.
  7. Click the image:Edit icon for the filesystem.
  8. Click the General link and deselect the Inherit from project checkbox.
  9. Choose a mountpoint under /export, even though SMB shares are accessed by resource name.
  10. On the Protocols screen for the project, set the resource name to on.
  11. Enable sharesmb and share-level ACL for the Project.
  12. Click the Apply button to activate the configuration.

SMB Data Service Configuration

  1. On the Configuration > Services > SMB screen, click the image:Power icon to enable the service.
  2. Set SMB properties according to the recommendations in the properties section of this page and click the Apply button to activate the configuration.
  3. Click the Autohome link on the Configuration > Services > SMB screen to set autohome rules to map SMB clients to home directories according to the descriptions in the Autohome rules section above and click the Apply button to activate the configuration.
  4. Click the Local Groups link on the Configuration > Services > SMB screen and use the image:Add item icon to add administrators or backup operator users to local groups according to the descriptions in the Local Groups section above and click the Apply button to activate the configuration.
