Connect to a CIFS File Share Using Unix Devices
This article applies to: Shared File Services
Unix devices can connect to CIFS file shares, but caveats apply.
- Mac OS CIFS access is supported by Shared File Services.
While Shared File Services does not currently offer support for Linux systems accessing CIFS, schools/departments/units may offer this support.
Note: In testing, Linux altered the permissions/ownerships on files which impacted access from Windows systems. Depending on your implementation of Linux, you may not have this concern.
