The Solaris CIFS Administration Guide describes the SolarisTM Common Internet File System (CIFS) service. This book is intended for system administrators and end users. Both Solaris Operating System (Solaris OS) and Windows system administrators can use this information to configure and integrate the Solaris CIFS service into a Windows environment. In addition, system administrators can configure the identity mapping service. Finally, the chapter about the Solaris CIFS client is primarily intended for Solaris users who would like to mount CIFS shares. The Solaris CIFS client chapter also includes tasks to be performed by a system administrator.
