A network share or NAS share is a folder in a storage pool which is accessible via the NFS and CIFS protocols. By default new shares are accessible via NFS but to add CIFS access you must check the box indicating 'Enable CIFS/SMB Access'. Once selected there are some advanced settings for CIFS access that can be configured. The Storage Pool box indicates the storage pool in which the new share will be created and the detail shows how much space is left in the storage pool.
