Symptoms

Users connecting to storage using Windows clients got access denied when attempting to connect to a share.  Users could access the share via their Unix systems.

The customer had configured the share to manage access by group id.   User authentication by user id was provided by Active Directory.  Group membership was provided by a Unix ldap server, the group id was not configured in Active Directory.  The groupid chosen to manage the share was not the primary group id of the users.

 

Permissions on the mounted file system from a unix host were:

# ls -Vd /mnt
drwxrwx---   5 ptest    tstgrp         6 Dec  1 23:59 /mnt
                 owner@:rwxp-DaARWcCos:-------:allow
                 group@:rwxp-DaARWc--s:-------:allow
              everyone@:------a-R-c--s:-------:allow

id -a username run on a Solaris client using the same ldap server showed group membership in the testgrp.

# id -a ptest
uid=44401(ptest) gid=100(staff) groups=100(staff),1234(tstgrp)
