Machine is missing an essential component (CIFS)

    You don't necessarily need to install a package if you see this message.

    CIFS is only needed by CloudShare if you want to be able to use Cloud Folders.

    If you don't care about Cloud Folders, and have no need of your own for CIFS, then you can safely ignore the message if it does appear.

    On some CentOs machines, you may have to run:

    yum install cifs-utils

    yum install nfs-utils

    in addition to installing the samba-client package. I couldn't get rid of the error message until I installed all three.
