Description

The following document is intended to be used as a guide for troubleshooting NFS access to NTFS security style volumes (or qtrees).


Before starting, it is important to have some basic configuration information about the environment, this will allow us to check the configuration of all items involved in the access process.

  • Vserver name
  • Volume name
  • The name of the LIF that is being used to access the volume

Once this information is known, collect the following information. Examples are as follows:

::> vol show -vserver vs1 -volume voltest -fields policy,unix-permissions,junction-path,junction-parent,security-style,type
vserver volume  type policy  security-style unix-permissions junction-path junction-parent
------- ------- ---- ------- -------------- ---------------- ------------- ---------------
vs1     voltest RW   default ntfs           ---rwxr-xr-x     /voltest      vs1_root


Run the command again, this time specifying the junction-parent as the volume.
::> volume show -vserver vs1 -volume vs1_root -fields policy,unix-permissions,junction-path,junction-parent,security-style,type
vserver volume   type policy  security-style unix-permissions junction-path junction-parent
------- -------- ---- ------- -------------- ---------------- ------------- ---------------
vs1     vs1_ro   RW   default ntfs           ---rwxr-xr-x     /             -


::> export-policy rule show -vserver vs1 -policyname default -instance


Determine which node the interface is on for the volume you are accessing. If you do not know the LIF information, use the -address option.
::> net int show -address 10.61.92.47
The node on which the LIF is on should be used when the node name is requested in the following commands.
