It would be nice to know why you cannot use ganesha or mmsmb.

You don't have to use protocols or CES. We are migrating to CES from doing our 
own thing with NFS and samba on Debian. Debian does not have support for CES, 
so we had to roll our own. We did not use CNFS either. To get to CES we had to 
change OS. We did this because we valued the support. I'd say the failover 
works better with CES than with our solution, particularly with regards failing 
over and Infiniband IP address.

I have read this atricle:
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/STXKQY_4.2.0/com.ibm.spectrum.scale.v4r2.adv.doc/bl1adv_ces_migrationcnfstoces.htm

So, in a shortcut, CNFS cannot be used when sharing via CES.
I cannot use ganesha NFS.

Is it possible to share a cluster via SMB and NFS without using CES ?
the nfs will be expored via CNFS but what about SMB ? i cannot use mmsmb..
