CIFS/SMB Client on Solaris 11

I am fairly new to Solaris and I am attempting to mount a cifs share. I have already installed the system/file-system/samba or whatever it was but I still cannot mount with smbfs. I am told that the filesystem type is not available because it is not installed.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Dan

    I was able to figure this out, however now I need to disable UNIX extensions on the client. Not terribly familiar with Samba on Solaris, any helpful hints?

    Thanks

    in the past before oracle, when there was a large community, there were many docs on it, look at:
    [http://www.genunix.org/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started_With_the_Solaris_CIFS_Service]

    i retrieved this (2008!):
    [https://blogs.oracle.com/timthomas/entry/solaris_cifs_in_workgroup_mode]


    and here are some notes i used on my home machine:

    ultra20-root% svcadm enable -r smb/server
    svcadm: svc:/milestone/network depends on svc:/network/physical, which has multiple instances.
    ultra20-root% smbadm join -w WORKGROUP
    Successfully joined workgroup 'WORKGROUP'
    ultra20-root% zfs set sharesmb=on data/export/home
    ultra20-root% sharemgr show -vp
    default smb=() nfs=()
    zfs
    zfs/data/export/home nfs=() smb=()
    data_export_home=/export/home
    data_export_home_jdsuser=/export/home/jdsuser smb=()


    hope this help,
