Hi,

For the EVA6400 there are only fibre channel ports.

The way I see this to be done is to present the vdisks from the EVA to something else, and then this something else present CIFS shares.

The "module" that the EVA6400 quickspecs mention can do CIFS is an "EVA File Services".

EVA6400 quickspecs:

I haven't seen this EVA File Services before so don't know how well it would work in comparison to setting up your own Windows/CIFS server/cluster that have LUNs from the EVA.

EFS is a pair of Windows/Linux servers clustered by Polyserve.
