CIFS is one of the industry-standard protocols HCP supports for namespace access. To access a namespace through CIFS, you can write applications that use any standard CIFS client library, or you can use the Windows GUI or a Command Prompt window to access the namespace directly.

Using the CIFS protocol, you can store, view, retrieve, and delete objects. You can also change certain system metadata for existing objects.

For you to access a namespace through CIFS, this protocol must be enabled in the namespace configuration, and the namespace configuration must have the Browse, Read, and Write Minimum Data Access Permissions enabled. If you cannot use the CIFS protocol to access the namespace, contact your namespace administrator.

This chapter explains how to use CIFS for namespace access.
