After the Guest Mode Is Configured, Name and Password still need When Windows Host try to Access a OceanStor 5500 V3 CIFS Share

Issue Description

After the Guest mode is configured, why is a dialog box still displayed asking me to enter a user name and password when I use a Windows host to access a CIFS share?



Solution

After the Guest mode is configured, the CIFS share authentication policy implemented by the storage system is as follows: If the authentication user name in a request initiated by the host does not exist in the local authentication user list on the storage system, the user is authenticated as a guest user.That is, the authentication is passed. If the authentication user name in a request initiated by the host exists in the local authentication user list on the storage system, the user is authenticated based on the local user name and password saved on the torage system.

When attempting to access a CIFS share, a Windows host first accesses the storage system by using the user name and password that are used to log in to the host. If a local authentication user account has the same name as the user account that logs in to the Windows host but a different password, the authentication fails and a dialog box is displaying asking you to enter a user name and password.
After the Guest mode is configured for CIFS, a user who attempts to access a CIFS share is typically not required to enter a user name and password. However, if the dialog box is displayed, check whether a local authentication user account has the same name as the user account that logs in to the Windows host but a different password. If such a local authentication user account exists, delete it from the storage system. Then, the dialog box will no longer be displayed in the event of accessing a CIFS share.
