Files from a Windows Shared Mounted using CIFS Type do not Display Correctly when Accessed Through the Oracle HTTP Server Alias Directive (Doc ID 2884517.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 A network share has been mounted in a Linux system using CIFS file system type.

mount -t cifs -o <SHARE_INFORMATION> <MOUNTPOINT>

In OHS an Alias has been configured to use this share,

Alias /context <MOUNTPOINT>

When accessing files using http the output contains header information or other information that is not typically shown and the file does not display as expected. For example,

d: <TIMESTAMP>
ETag: "xxxx"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 58
X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/plain
