Appliance port on 6248 Fabric Interconnects

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.

Thanks,

Chad

iSCSI, CIFS and NFS targets are all valid uses for the appliance port. 

All the appliance port does is allow MAC learning on the interface.

Robert
