Is it possible to setup a storage device with a CIFS share on the 6248's through a port defined as an appliance port? The GUI guide says this:
"Appliance ports are only used to connect fabric interconnects to directly attached NFS storage."
But what would be the difference if it were a CIFS share rather than an NFS mount?
I'm trying to setup a storage unit that does both NFS and CIFS, but the backup software that I want to point to it through the FI's needs to have it as a CIFS share due to being a Windows platform.
Any and all comments welcome.
