Getting CIFS permissions working in OpenSolaris

I blogged a while back about how I managed to get NFS4 configured on my OpenSolaris server. At the end of that blog, I promised to update on getting CIFS working as well using the OpenSolaris CIFS server.

Finally got around to it tonight. Took a while as every attempt from my Vista machine was reporting an "Access Denied" message when running "net view \\opensolaris".

To cut a long story short, the problem was caused by me setting up a mapping between Unix and Windows using the idmap command. The answer was to remove any mappings and allow the CIFS server to work it out itself. All sorted!
