Accessing CIFS Shares

Accessing CIFS Shares

This section describes how to access CIFS shares. By accessing a CIFS share, different users can access the shared directory.


  1. Right-click Computer on a Windows-based client.
  2. Select Map Network Drive.
  3. In Folder, enter the path of the mapped folder, and select Connect using different credentials.

    The path format is \\logical ip address\sharename, logical ip address indicates a logical port IP address of the storage system, and sharename indicates the name of the CIFS share.

  4. Click Finish.
  5. In Windows Security, enter the user name and password of the local user and click OK.

    • In a domain, enter the domain user name in the Domain name/Domain user name format in User Name and enter the password of the domain user in Password.
    • In a non-domain environment, enter the user name and password of the local authentication user in User Name and Password respectively.

  6. View the mapped network drive.

    Double-click Computer. The Computer window is displayed, listing mapped network drives.

  7. Double-click the mapped network drive to access the CIFS share.

Follow-up Procedure

To cancel the sharing, run the command net use [DeviceName] /del in the Windows CLI. DeviceName indicates the disk drive that needs to be disconnected, such as z:.

If the information about a local authentication user or domain user is changed (for example, the user is forbiddened, the password is changed or expires, the relationship is changed, or the user is deleted) when a client accesses the file system of CIFS shares, the changed information will take effect after authentication is passed in the next time (by mounting shares again).

The storage system supports offline sharing. When a client is mounted and shared, you can still read and write on a local duplicate on the client even when it is disconnected with the storage system. When the connection resumes, data modified offline is synchronized automatically to the storage system. (If the shared data in the storage system is changed, you need to manually start the synchronization.)
