Is it possible to use SMB/CIFS and NFS in same 3par VFS ?

I create a VFS with full FPG space and shared the VFS by NFS share.

Now is it possible to use SMB/CIFS and NFS in same 3par VFS ?

Storage: 3PAR 8450

Hello @Mortuza,

Yes. You can use SMB/CIFS and NFS on the same VFS.

Hi @sbhat09 

Thanks for your comment. 

If I do so, is there any precaution sould I take ?

Becouse my VFS already shared by NFS file system to Linux host. 

Is the any documentaion for this ? I didn't find any in google.

The functionaltiy you are looking for is called "cross-protocol".

Full shared access came with FilePersona 1.5. 

Prior to that version you could have only one protocol-type with read-write and all the others with read-only access.

If you google for "cross-protocol" and "File Persona" then you may get old documents.

The following link, which is supposed to be the correct one, is currently stale. I will try to find the correct one.

Title of the document is: "Setup guide for cross-protocol configuration using SMB, NFS, FTP, and HTTP protocols
HPE 3PAR OS 3.3.1 MU2"

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=a00069739enw

The setup can become complex especially if you want to share UID and GID (rfc2307)

I will try to find the document for you and post it here.

Hope that helps.
