2.2.2.4 SMB Error Classes and Codes

This section provides an overview of status codes that can be returned by the SMB commands listed in this document, including mappings between the NTSTATUS codes used in the NT LAN Manager dialect, the SMBSTATUS class/code pairs used in earlier SMB dialects, and common POSIX equivalents. The POSIX error code mappings are based upon those used in the Xenix server implementation. This is not an exhaustive listing and MUST NOT be considered normative.

Each command and subcommand description also includes a list of status codes that are returned by CIFS-compliant servers. Individual implementations can return status codes from their underlying operating systems; it is up to the implementer to decide how to interpret those status codes.

The listing below is organized by SMBSTATUS Error Class. It shows SMBSTATUS Error Code values and a general description, as well as mappings from NTSTATUS values ([MS-ERREF] section 2.3.1) and POSIX-style error codes where possible. Note that multiple NTSTATUS values can map to a single SMBSTATUS value.
