Display information about what types of users are connected over SMB sessions

Contributors

You can display information about what type of users are connected over SMB sessions. This can help you ensure that only the appropriate type of user is connecting over SMB sessions on the storage virtual machine (SVM).

About this task

The following types of users can connect over SMB sessions:

  • local-user

    Authenticated as a local CIFS user

  • domain-user

    Authenticated as a domain user (either from the CIFS server’s home domain or a trusted domain)

  • guest-user

    Authenticated as a guest user

  • anonymous-user

    Authenticated as an anonymous or null user

Steps
  1. Determine what type of user is connected over an SMB session: vserver cifs session show -vserver vserver_name -windows-user windows_user_name -fields windows-user,address,lif-address,user-type

    If you want to display user type information for established sessions…​ Enter the following command…​

    For all sessions with a specified user type

    vserver cifs session show -vserver vserver_name -user-type {local-user|domain-user|guest-user|anonymous-user}

    For a specific user

    vserver cifs session show -vserver vserver_name -windows-user windows_user_name -fields windows-user,address,lif-address,user-type

Examples

The following command displays session information on the user type for sessions on SVM vs1 established by user "` iepubs\user1`":

cluster1::> vserver cifs session show -vserver pub1 -windows-user iepubs\user1 -fields windows-user,address,lif-address,user-type
node      vserver session-id connection-id lif-address  address       windows-user         user-type
