# stop the target Gluster volume and change settings

[root@node01 ~]#
gluster volume stop vol_distributed

Stopping volume will make its data inaccessible. Do you want to continue? (y/n)

[2] Configure Samba.
For example, Create a shared Folder that users in [smbgroup] group can only access to shared folder [smbshare] and also they are required user authentication.
# mount Gluster volume with GlusterFS Native and create a shared folder for SMB access

[root@node01 ~]#
mount -t glusterfs node01.srv.world:/vol_distributed /mnt

[root@node01 ~]#
mkdir /mnt/smbshare

[root@node01 ~]#
groupadd smbgroup

[root@node01 ~]#
chgrp smbgroup /mnt/smbshare

[root@node01 ~]#
chmod 770 /mnt/smbshare

[root@node01 ~]#

[5] Verify it can access to the target share with SMB from any Linux client computer.
The examples below are on Linux clients but it's possible to access from Windows clients with common way.
# verify with [smbclient]

[root@client ~]#
smbclient //node01.srv.world/gluster-vol_distributed -U cent

Password for [SAMBA\cent]:
