I need to copy data from a Netapp to a EMC Clariion.
I am tring to map a drive from my windows server to the Netapp device.
I am able to resolve where the share is but I am not able to authenticate to the netapp share.
I have updated the CIFs ACL with my windows domain admin account with Full control but i a not able to connect with this account still. I have also tried authentication using the root account from netapp. What more can I do to allow my windows 2003 server to be able to map a drive to the netapp share?

    make sure you set the preferred dns server on the netapp.

    I never got this to work. I ended up attaching the EMC to a linux server and everything worked from there.
