Fact

Novell NetWare 6.0

Novell NetWare 5.1

Novell Native File Access Pack (NFAP)

Symptom

CIFS server not reading correct configuration out of NDS.

CIFS configuration always shows DOMAIN Authentication to the WORKGROUP Domain.

Cause

The CIFS.CFG file located in SYS:\ETC directory is missing or corrupt.

Fix

Even though the configuration has been moved to NDS, this file is needed for some reason.  Copy the file from a working server or create one using the following configuration as a template.

-SERVERNAME 'MyServer_W'
-COMMENT 'NFAP on MyServer'
-UNICODE OFF
-AUTHENT local
-WORKGROUP 'NFAPGROUP'


### The configuration for CIFS was moved to NDS.
### Please do not modify this file, because it will be ignored.
