    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Sure, that's why I told him to use the terminal, there always is a possibility that his napp-it install is not working properly. What I said is just an alternate way to try fixing his problems.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    If you create a user called paul as suggested don't forget to enable it with smb. On a terminal on the server, as root, issue the command: # smbadm enable-user paul <ENTER> then, # passwd paul <ENTER> After setting paul's password chown paul /QMEDIA1/MEDIA1, and chmod 777...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Try changing ownership to the Windows admin user, open a terminal on server (not on napp-it), become root (su <ENTER, then password) type: # chown <win admin name> /Qmedia1/Media1 Type cat /etc/pam.conf and check if it has the line (usually the last one): other password required...

    Another Help me decide on ZFS, ESXi hardware thread

    Suggestion is install openindiana without Esxi and use Virtualbox and Zones to virtualize your stuff, that way you don't need a Xeon processor.

    Another Help me decide on ZFS, ESXi hardware thread

    THANKS! I've made that mistake in the past and had it bite me... I think I will go with something like this: Crucial CT2KIT51272BA1339 8GB for now until the 8gb dimms are more readily available. If you look at the i5-2400 specs on Intel site you see that the processor DOESN'T accept ECC memory.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)
