We have a SLES/OES2 SP3 deployment coming up with something like 80 servers and 80 contexts.

Having configured our cluster with the 80 contexts using iManager as recommended by the docs, I don't want to do it again. It would be a complete waste of time doing it 80 times and whilst sub-tree search would be a solution, it doesn't scale well in a tree our size - much better to put the local context at the head of the cifsctxs.conf file so that local users are found quickly.

I did at one point come across some information that detailled the required permissions but can't find it again.

If i can work out what's required I can develop a script and use jrbutils to assign the permissions and then create a cifsctx.conf file and copy it to each server.

Any pointers appreciated
