What are the permission management modes provided for the file system sharing by the file engine?

The file engine provides two types of file share mode: the CIFS share and the NFS share.

For the CIFS share, the authentication modes include local authentication and domain authentication. The locally authenticated permissions are managed based on local groups. The domain authentication permissions are managed based on files which is configured by the AD domain administrator after the file engine is added to the AD domain.

For the NFS share, the permissions on the file system are managed and controlled by providing a specific client or network group in NFS mode. Sharing the file system to the network group requires that the file engine be added to the LDAP domain or NIS domain. Therefore, you can manage the permission on the file system by configuring and managing the network information (user information or group information) of the LDAP domain server or NIS domain server.
