    Issue: Unable to map the CIFS share on Windows and add/modify folders and files, but on the Linux side, I can mount the NFS share but cannot access the share directory after mounting, even though the directory has 777 permissions and I am using the root account with r/w and root access configured?

    Solution: The issue seems to be related to the 'ntfs' security style option Dondeti, Mahesh selected when creating the dual protocol share. After creating a new dual-protocol share, this time selecting the 'unix' security style, Now able to mount and write to the share from both the CIFS and NFS sides s.
