================================================
III. Known issues
================================================
2082542 Ignore the core files generated by dbping command.

Workaround: 
Run "support gui server start" if GUI is not working.

2092887 Export CIFS share with guest & then later with noguest, causes "access denied"

Issues Details:
Guest user can still access a share after changed share option from "guest" to "noguest", this is due to that an established session from windows client to CIFS server is still active after the share modification.

Work around: Restart CIFS server to prevent guest user to access the same share.


2113189	CIFS requires a command line to allow or deny access of a share from specified user(s) or group(s). 

Workaround:
CIFS provides 2 new commands for control the share access:
1. Allow groups/users to access a share
CIFS> share allow <sharename> @group1,(@group2, user1, user2...)
2. Deny some groups/users to access a share
CIFS> share deny <sharename> @group1,(@group2, user1, user2...)
Command help information can be found in "man cifs" and "man cifs share".
Note 1:
If CIFS server joined a domain, possibly there is space key in user or group
names, when use in such share allow/deny command line, these user or group names
need to double quote (i.e. "@domain users").
Note 2:
In case CIFS joined a domain and the domain has trusted domains, at the same
time, CIFS has set allow trusted domain to be true, if user wants allow/deny
users or groups from the trusted domains, the user or group should be prefix
with trusted domain name, and separate domain and user/group with double
back-slash. 
i.e.
CIFS> share allow <sharename> "@<domain name>\\<group name>"
CIFS> share deny <sharename> "<domain name>\\<user name>"

2129337 GUI service Faulted and not fixing with autofix.

Workaround:
Even after running "support services autofix" GUI service does not come online then running "support gui db rescan" will take care of it.

2129679 Cannot login to GUI but the GUI server status is online in CLISH. Always show "The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request."

Workaround:
This issue was seen when the frequency of user login is very high which in turn increases the memory usage causing java virtual machine(JVM) to throw exception. So as a workaround for this issue, only way is to restart the GUI server. This can be done using ¡°support>gui server stop¡± & ¡°support>gui server start¡±.
