Configure Samba users for SQL Server instant access
Starting with NetBackup 9.0 and later, you must first configure Samba users for SQL Server instant access on the corresponding storage server and enter the credentials on the client. This configuration is also required if you upgrade to NetBackup 9.0.
If the Samba service on a storage server is part of Windows domain, the Windows domain users can be used for Samba share. In this scenario, credentials are not required to access the share.
The following table describes the steps to be performed to add or manage Samba users if the Samba service is not part of Windows domain.

For existing users:
If you want to add an existing user to the Samba service, run the following command: smbpasswd -a test_samba_user
To automatically start the SQL Server database, ensure that you can access the share when you log on with the instance credentials from the web UI.
