Security Login Create

All, I am trying to configure AD group authentication for my controllers. When I run the following command below from the CLI it works with no issues and the group is added:

 

security login create -user-or-group-name "PIE\PIE Storage Admin" -application ssh -authentication-method domain -role admin -vserver CLUSTERNAME

 

However when I try the same syntax using poweshell, I get an error stating that "storage" is not a "-application" parameter. The code I am using for the powershell is:

 

 

Invoke-NcSsh security login create -user-or-group-name "PIE\PIE Storage Admin" -application ssh -authentication-method domain -role admin -vserver $clustername

 

Any help on this would be great.

Hello @drwoodberry,

 

Why not use the New-NcUser cmdlet?

 

New-NcUser -UserName 'PIE\PIE Storage Admin' -Application ssh -AuthMethod domain -Role admin -Vserver $clusername

Re: Security Login Create

The CLI command needs to be within quotes - here the problem is PowerShell thinks "Application" is a parameter for Invoke-NcSSH cmdlet.

 

Try using it like this - should work.

 

$cmd = "security login create -user-or-group-name `"PIE\PIE Storage Admin`" -application ssh -authentication-method domain -role admin -vserver $clustername"
Invoke-NcSSH $cmd

I second Andrew's suggestion of using the New-NcUser cmdlet instead though - it's always better to use a PSTK cmdlet than use the passthrough.

Agree, use built-in cmdlet's when possible

Re: Security Login Create

I did not even think about that. I was looking in the wrong place for the commandlets and just brain farted. That was simple to use.

 

I appreciate the assist. 

Re: Security Login Create

It appears that sometimes it assumes a parameter is part of the command and other times it does not. I use InVoke-NcSsh a few times in my scripts and usually any options within the command are not seen as a parameter to the InVoke-NcSsh commandlet. 

 

I apprecuate the help.

Re: Security Login Create

The other thing to note in your scripting is that you had a single backslach '\'.  In most scripting languages the backslash is interpreted as the start of an escape sequence.  In order to have a backslash be interpreted not as the escape sequence, you need to use a double backslash '\\'.
