When setting up an Xsan volume, what must you do if you have Windows clients who are going to need access to the volume?

If you have Windows clients, choose an ID mapping method.
Note: To use ID mapping, Windows clients must be running StorNext 2.7. Xsan controllers and clients must be running Xsan 1.3 or later.

Generate IDs from GUID: Windows clients dynamically generate UIDs and GIDs based on GUID information in an Active Directory domain.

Use IDs from LDAP (RFC 2307): Windows clients get UID and GID values from the uidNumber and gidNumber attributes in Active Directory records.

For more information, see Mapping Windows User and Group IDs on page 112.
