Release : 14




1- set “Software Jobs – Download Method = Internal – NOS” for Linux Agent




2- On Linux Agent set parameter value itrm/usd/shared/NOS=MS with following command :

export share=SDLIBRARY$

4- SD Agent execute following command to mount the share (example with scalability server name JY-W2K16-DM3.localdomain) :

sdmount smb install JY-W2K16-DM3.localdomain SDLIBRARY$ /opt/CA/DSM/sd/smb


This command executes following System command:

mount -t cifs //JY-W2K16-DM3.localdomain/SDLIBRARY$ /opt/CA/DSM/sd/smb -o iocharset=utf8,username=anonymous%anonymous


When it works command “sdmount install” creates the directory /opt/CA/DSM/sd/smb which is mounted on SDLIBRARY$ share of scalability server.


To unmount it the command is:

sdmount smb deinstall JY-W2K16-DM3.localdomain SDLIBRARY$ /opt/CA/DSM/sd/smb


After this command the directory /opt/CA/DSM/sd/smb is removed


5- To allow Linux mount command to map the share with anonymous on Windows 2016 Server, make sure that following settings are set on Windows 2016 server :


  • Check in Local Security Policy/Security Options if "Accounts: Guest account status" is set to Enabled


  • Permissions on SDLIBRARY$ share (on C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\DSM\SD\ASM\LIBRARY) contains :
