SMB Shares Page Overview
In the Web UI, hover over Sharing and click SMB Shares from the dropdown.
A list of SMB shares displays, including the name of each SMB share, file system path, and encryption status.
Create an SMB Share
- Click Create Share on the SMB Shares page.
- Fill in the following fields to configure your new share.
Refer to the following table for additional details:
Field Description File system path The directory path to the share from the root of the Qumulo file system. Check Create new directory if it doesn't exist to create it. Share name The name of the SMB share. This is how you access the share (i.e., \\<server-name>\<share-name>). Description A brief description of the share. Enable access-based enumeration Displays only the files and folders that a user has permissions to access. If a user does not have Read or equivalent permissions for a folder, the folder is hidden from the user’s view. Require encryption If encryption is required, users can only connect over SMB3.0+ with encryption-enabled clients. Default file create mode (3.0.4 or later) Useful for environments supporting SMB and NFS. These are the equivalent POSIX permissions to be applied by SMB clients creating files which do not contain inheritable NTFS Access Control Lists. Values must be octal and 3-4 digits long (with or without a leading 0). Default directory create mode (3.0.4 or later) Useful for environments supporting SMB and NFS. These are the equivalent POSIX permissions to be applied by SMB clients creating directories which do not contain inheritable NTFS Access Control Lists. Values must be octal and 3-4 digits long (with or without a leading 0). Add allow/deny Click the option for the share permissions entry type you wish to create (allow or deny). Trustee
The trustee for the share permissions entry. This can be as simple as Everyone or a specific domain user. Click the '?' icon for examples.
NOTE: In 2.12.1 and above, an All Access ACE for “admin” will be included by default.
Permissions Specify the explicit access permissions for each entry in the share permissions.
- Click Create Share to add it to the SMB Shares page.
NOTE: When you add a Deny entry, it is added to the top of the listing, while Allow entries are added to the bottom. This ensures that users who are explicitly denied access are processed prior to granting access to any.
Modify an SMB Share
- From the SMB Shares page, click the Edit () button next to the share you wish to change.
- Make the desired changes and click Save to finish.
Remove an SMB Share
- On the SMB Shares page, click the Delete () button next to the share you wish to remove.
- Confirm the removal of the share by selecting Yes, Delete Share when prompted or click Cancel to keep the share.
