In What Way Does the Clustered NAS Storage System Manage Permissions on an NFS Shared File System?

17

The clustered NAS storage system manages and controls permissions on an NFS shared file system by allowing only a specific client or network group to access this NFS shared file system. When configuring an NFS share in an LDAP domain or NIS domain, you need to add the clustered NAS storage system to a corresponding domain. When a client tries to access the NFS shared file system, the LDAP server or NIS server functions to authenticate the client and determine whether they have the permission on the NFS shared file system.

What Are Permission Management Modes Provided for the File System Shared by the Clustered NAS Storage System?
The clustered NAS storage system supports the CIFS share, NFS share, FTP share, and HTTP 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 are configured by the AD domain administrator after the clustered NAS storage system 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 clustered NAS storage system 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. For the FTP share, you can assign different permissions to users for one directory or folder. You can set the maximum number of access threads of an IP address and setting the ports of the FTP server. This function enables users to flexibly configure the FTP service and maintain the FTP server. For the HTTP share, users are allowed to access the file system through HTTP. HTTP is a protocol used for servers to transfer hypertext to local browsers.

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.

What are the permission management modes provided for the file system sharing by the N8000?
The N8000 provides two types of file share mode: the CIFS share, the NFS share, the FTP share and the HTTP 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 N8000 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 N8000 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. For the FTP share, different users are set to have different permissions for the same directory or file. Global configuration includes setting the maximum number of access threads of an IP address and setting the ports of the FTP server. This function enables the user to flexibly configure the FTP service and maintain FTP services. For the HTTP share, HTTP is primarily used for transferring hpertext from the server to the local browser. The N8500 allows you to access files system using the HTTP.

What Are Permission Management Modes Provided for the File System Shared by the S2600T/S5500T/S5600T/S5800T Storage System?
The S2600T/S5500T/S5600T/S5800T storage system supports the CIFS share, NFS share, FTP share, and HTTP 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 storage system 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 S2600T/S5500T/S5600T/S5800T storage system 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. For the FTP share, you can assign different permissions to users for one directory or folder. You can set the maximum number of access threads of an IP address and setting the ports of the FTP server. This function enables users to flexibly configure the FTP service and maintain the FTP server. For the HTTP share, users are allowed to access the file system through HTTP.
