Authentication failure to cDot controller connecting from powershell

Authentication is failing for my ‘domain\user1_us’ but it works for one teammate’s “domain\user2_us” account. Also 'admin' user is working fine. We were wondering because both of us have same permissions on NAS as well as on Active Directory.Accounts created using,

# security login create -vserver vservername -username domain\user1_us -application ssh -authmethod domain -role admin

# security login create -vserver vservername -username domain\user1_us -application ontapi -authmethod  domain -role admin

 

Following 2 lines will be responsible.

$pwd = Get-Credential -credential "domain\user1_us”

Connect-NcController “clustername” -vserver “vservername” -Credential $pwd -ErrorAction silentlycontinue | Out-Null

 

 Really appreciate the help.

Hi,


No issues with your powershell code, have you check the secd.log file (/mroot/etc/log/mlog/secd.log) for authentication errors from the domain user in question? See this KB

You could try a "diag secd trace".

Hpadmana -

 

You may want to compare user1 and user2 with the 'security login show' command.
