IHAC who needs to narrow acces to some shares from only a few Windows clients.
The behavior they want is the same as for a NFS mount only available to some NFS clients.
This Netapp controller is NTFS-only, so there is only NTFS qtrees and no unix right anywhere.
What is available today on their controller:
- every share has some security ACL specifying users and groups who can acces the share.
- the issue is that shares are available from any Windows client in the domain
What theyr would like:
- For some shares, they want only some PCs to have access to the share.
Anyone has an idea ?
I believe you are looking to restrict the access to the share from some client PCs even though the user logged in has access to it. unfortunately, you cannot apply client based restrictions on the shares. Windows allows user based restrictions so is OnTAP.
Otherway is to restric the users who has access to the shares loging into those client machines through local access in the security policy but not share base.
