unity usermapper range

Unity multi-protocol is quite different from VNX

usermapper is only active and used for CIFS only NAS servers

there is no concept of DM/cabinet/global usermapper so there is no uid/gid range configurable

For a multi-protocol NAS server you need to provide valid mapping through either:


– ntxmap

– default Unix/Windows user (new in Unity)

Any Windows users that cannot be mapped by one of the above will not be able to connect

there should be a new manual about it available for the next release not too far away

I would suggest to first test extensively on a lab setup.
