It seems that the available documentation for enabling CIFS shares in workgroup mode fails to mention that by defualt the CIFS server will NOT be visible in the Windows Network Places/Network Neighborhood.
sharectl defines several functions for the smb protocol that seem to be hard to find documentation on. The only reference I found was here: http://www.opensolarisforum.org/man/man4/smb.html $ sharectl get smb system_comment= max_workers=1024 max_connections=32768 netbios_scope= client_lmauth_level=4 server_lmauth_level=4 keep_alive=5400 wins_server_1= wins_server_2= wins_exclude= client_signing_required=false server_signing_enabled=false server_signing_required=false restrict_anonymous=false pdc= ads_site= ddns_enable=false dns_suffix= autohome_map=/etc ipv6_enable=false print_enable=false map= unmap= disposition= system_comment "Specifies an optional description for the system, which is a text string. This property value might appear in various places, such as Network Neighborhood or Network Places on Windows clients. By default, no value is set." Since by default there is nothing there, nothing shows up. The following command fixes the problem: ~# sharectl set -p system_comment=yourservername smb _______________________________________________ cifs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/cifs-discuss
