Today I ran across an issue with CIFS on a NetApp filer running Ontap 8.01 while attempting to add some AD Groups to the Share permission on the filer.
Using System Manager 2, System Manager 1.1, the CLI , etc – I was unable to add any Active Directory groups to the share permissions of shares created in CIFS.
Turns out it a bug….
The way to deal with it is to use Computer Management from a Windows box, Connect to Another Computer, enter the filer name, then use the Shares section to manage permissions.
Hope this saves someone some time!
