In actuality, I started that TR in March of 2017. And then again in February of 2019. And then started all over when the pandemic hit, because what else did I have going on? 🙂

And it’s not like I haven’t done *stuff* in that time.

The trouble was, I do multiprotocol NAS every day, so I think I had writer’s block because I didn’t know where to start and the challenge of writing an entire TR on the subject without making it 100-200 pages like some of the others I’ve written was… daunting. But, it’s finally done. And the actual content is under 100 pages!

Topics include:

  • NFS and SMB best practices/tips
  • Name mapping explanations and best practices
  • Name service information
  • CIFS Symlink information
  • Advanced multiprotocol NAS concepts
