Problem in connecting to 7m & CDot storage systems

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

 

I am trying to fetch details across 7M & Cdot storage systems. I use  domain credentials to  login to the storage systems. While doing so following issues are being encountered.

 

i) Everytime I start the script I need to provide the credentials to get into the storage systems for fetching the details. which I want to avoid and it should do it automatically

 

ii) Tried defining user and pword variables and creating a new object. Which works but I dont want to keep the user/password in the script as lot of users use the same system

    $cred = New-Object –TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential –ArgumentList $user,$pword [ $user/ $pword  are defined]

 

iii) Most importantly while connecting to the storage systems I am getting the following error frequently. Details mentioned below.

 

      Note: I use the -credential for authentication . We need to rely on using domain authentication only for authenticating to the filer

$nccontroller = Connect-NcController $controller -Credential $cred 

 

 

ERROR:

=======

 

Connect-NcController : Incorrect credentials for <controller_name>
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-NcController <controler_name>
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidResult: (controller_name:NcController) [Connect-NcController], NaAuthException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HttpConnectionFailed,DataONTAP.C.PowerShell.SDK.ConnectNcControll

 

Please suggest on the queries

Hello @ARB,

 

I wrote about authentication with the PSTK here, it might have some useful tips for you.

 

The easiest way is to use the "Add-NaCredential" and "Add-NcCredential" cmdlets to securely store the credentials on the system you're executing the script from.

 

Hope that helps.
