Cifs name lookup failed with dynamic home drives

Ok, so i'm confused... I do the following

 

show-user -vserver vserver1 -username myusername

 

Vserver: vserver1  (internal ID: 3)

Error: Lookup of CIFS account name procedure failed
[ 1 ms] Successfully connected to ip 10.1.1.1, port 445 using
TCP
[ 9] Successfully authenticated with DC
mserver.mydomain.com
[ 12] Could not find Windows name 'localvserver\myusername'
**[ 12] FAILURE: CIFS name lookup failed


Vserver : vserver1
Username : 'localvserver\myusername'

 

Why on earth is it pointing to my local vserver and not my domain.

 

It should come up as 

 

mydomain\myusername

 

I'm confused as to why this is happening, and I missing an option.  secd returns authentication fine, and my HD mounts fine.  I'm running 9.0RC2,  I believe this started in 9.0

Hi,

 

Please refer KB 2026949 secd.unexpectedFailure: vserver (vserver_1) Unexpected failure. Error: Lookup of CIFS account SID procedure failed. (requires login)

Re: Cifs name lookup failed with dynamic home drives

The issue was the difference between commands in 8.3 and 9.0. In 9.0.

 

In 9.0 you need to put -username domain\id
