LDAP when cifs is not licensed

I have an 8.3.1 cmode cluster that I have a need for LDAP authentication to.   This cluster is used only for FCP so it does not have CIFS licensed.   On my cifs licensed clusters this is easy by using a domain tunnel.   How do I create this same access when CIFS is not licensed?

You should be able to create domain tunnel even without CIFS license.

Re: LDAP when cifs is not licensed

yes but without cifs how will the domain tunnel talk to the domain?  I have configured the user logins and the domain tunnel but I cannot authenticate.

Hi,

You can create AD vserver connection with vserver active-directory create 

and use  security login domain-tunnel  create if you need AD auth on cluster side.

francoisbnc, 

 

 

Thank you, 

 

That is what I needed.  creating the AD account from command line worked and now my ad auth is working.
