Providing guest access to your file share

If you want to provide only guest access, your S3 File Gateway doesn't have to be part of a Microsoft AD domain. You can also use a S3 File Gateway that is a member of an AD domain to create file shares with guest access. Before you create a file share using guest access, you need to change the default password.

These steps set the password for the guest user smbguest. The smbguest user is the user when the authentication method for the file share is set to GuestAccess.

To change the guest access password
  1. Open the Storage Gateway console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/storagegateway/home.

  2. Choose Gateways, then choose the gateway for which you want to edit SMB settings.

  3. From the Actions drop-down menu, choose Edit SMB settings, then choose Guest access settings.

  4. For Guest password, provide a password, and then choose Save.
