Editing configuration files from a CIFS client

You can use a CIFS client to access the storage system’s C$ share and select a file to edit.

About this task

After setup finishes, the default /etc/passwd and /etc/group files on the root volume are set up to enable you to share files on the storage system as Administrator. The storage system root directory is shared automatically as C$. The Administrator account has read, write, and execute rights to the share.

Steps

  1. Connect from a CIFS client to the storage system as Administrator.
  2. Display the contents of the storage system’s C$ share, and select a file to edit.

    Note: The C$ share is a “hidden” share; you can get to it only by specifying the path manually (for example, as \\filer\C$), rather than accessing it through the Network Neighborhood icon.
