clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi all,

I have to create a Vserver for cifs.

I added the cifs server options in the field with the following syntax:

"Name='cifsserver',Domain='corp.sim.com',AdminUsername='administrator',AdminPassword='Netapp12'"

The Preview works fine, but when I try to execute on my simulated clustered ontap System, the Workflow comes with the following error message:

Failed to setup and configure Cifs service for vs3. Message: Der Befehl kann nicht verarbeitet werden, da mindestens ein verbindlicher Parameter fehlt:  Domain AdminUsername AdminPassword.

Does anyone knows the correct Syntax of the 4 Options (Name, Domain, AdminUsername and AdminPassword) I had to add in the Command "Create and configure CM Vserver"?

Thanks a lot and regards,

Ruediger

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Ruediger,

The error message that you are seeing translates to "The command can not be processed because at least one mandatory parameter is missing".

Considering that you are using the "Create and configure CM Vserver" command, the mandatory parameters are :

  • Cluster (ip address or fqdn)
  • RootVolumeAggregate
  • VserverName.

Have you provided values for these parameters?

Regards,

Tanzim

Hello Tanzim,

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, of course, I provided all the necessary parameters.

The error Message (i have no idea, why the message is posted in German) says also, that one of the mandatory Parameters from the "cifs Server options" are missing.

But, i provided also all the Parameters:

- Name

- Domain Name

- adminuser

- adminpassword

Do you have an idea?

Thanks and best regards,

Ruediger

Please see the attached screenshot.

That ist what I added in the Command "create and configure CM Vserver" in the cifs server option - Field.

With this information I get the Error-Message above.

Hi ruediger,

Please use the attached command  to create vserver with cifs configuration.

And Additionally specify CifsAllowed as "true" and DNS Domain names, DNS Server details.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hello Satish,

thanks for providing the Command.

How is the correct syntax for the "cifs server options"?

I added the following in the following syntax:

"name='vs3-cifs', domain='corp.sim.com', adminusername='administrator', adminpassword='Netapp12'"

cifs allowed: true

DNS Domain: 'corp.sim.com'

dns_servers: '172.16.55.138' (my local DNS Server)

And I get the following error-messages:

Failed to setup and configure Cifs service for vs3.

Do you have an idea?

Thanks!

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Ruediger,

dns_servers should contain domain IP.  Is '172.16.55.138' domain ip for domain 'corp.sim.com' ?

Satish.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi satish,

yes, the IP '172.16.55.138' is the DomainIP for 'corp.sim.com'.

Hi Ruediger,

Please can you send the command logs.

Thanks,

Satish.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Ruediger,,

Please use the following syntax. It worked for me with 'N' capital in "Name". Same applies to other parameters also.

"Name='vs3-cifs', Domain='corp.sim.com', AdminUsername='administrator', AdminPassword='Netapp12'"

Regards,

Satish.
