Migrating nfs file mounts from unified to data domain cifs

Hi,

I need to decommission our unified array, and I like the way Data Domain handles cifs. We created a cifs share, it mounted, however, when I try to copy the files under the nfs mounted directory to the cifs share I get cp: failed to preserve ownership for `/dev_stage_new/dev_stage/patches/1211_one_offs/7387837/backup/dev8': Permission denied for most files.

My cifs entry in the fstab looks like this:

//co-ps-dd-a02.cps.k12.il.us/nfs/dev_stage  /dev_stage_new      cifs  credentials=/etc/.smbcred,uid=oracle,gid=dba,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

My nfs mount on the VNX looks like this:

10.129.226.16:/dev_stage   /dev_stage       nfs rw,bg,nointr,hard,timeo=600,wsize=32768,rsize=32768,nfsvers=3,tcp,noac         0 0

Re: Migrating nfs file mounts from unified to data domain cifs

change folder permissions on DD folder to "Everyone" Full rights.  Question is why not use NFS from Data Domain ?

Re: Migrating nfs file mounts from unified to data domain cifs

Thank you so much Dynamox! So sorry for my late reply. Setting up CIFS shares is what our DD admin(not me)  is most famiiliar with so that is why we are testing that route first. It it doesn't work, I will help her set up NFS on the DD.
