We're running Solaris 2.4 and Transarc's DCE/DFS 1.1. We are also
running Cray's Unicos as a DCE client (I will explain later why I
mention the Cray).
We are having problems accessing DFS files when FTPing into a Solaris
2.4, Transarc DCE/DFS 1.1 client machine using a DCE id/password. I
assume the problem is that the ftpd daemon does not do a dce login to
log the user into both DCE and the unix machine, and thus no DCE
credentials are created.
The reason I mentioned the Cray above is that when we FTP into it
using a DCE id/password, we have full access to all of the DCE/DFS
files (the user would normally have access to), so the Cray version of
ftpd must create the DCE credentials that are missing from the
Sun/Transarc version of DCE.
Does anyone know if there is anything we can do to get ftpd to be able
to access DFS files when connceting into a Solaris 2.4, Transarc
DCE/DFS 1.1 client machine? Thanks!
