Failed to add Credentials

rogerhinson

I just upgraded from WFA 1.1 to WFA 2.1.

When I am adding Credentials with the selection of OnCommand Unified Manager, I get the error:

Failed to connect to OnCommand Unified Manager: dfmserver.company.net.

Exception calling "Invoke" with "2" argument(s): "Could not connect to dfmserver.company.net"

The user is a local on that server and has GlobalFullControl access.

The error I get when running a command that uses that account is:

00:53:53.915 INFO  [Set DFM Object Comments] ### Command 'Set DFM Object Comments' ###

00:54:02.415 INFO  [Set DFM Object Comments] ***** Workflow Execution Failed *****

On a working WFA server, the same command provides the following output:

21:33:43.060 INFO  [Set DFM Object Comments] Command completed, took 7250 milliseconds

It looks like it might be a problem with the Credential Cache.  Is there a way to clear it or reset it? 

Any other ideas?  Both the working and non-working servers are WFA 2.1.  Also, this was working in 1.1 on the same server.

Thanks,

Roger

Hi Roger,

This error happens when you server is reachable but user is not valid. Can you check your user?

NOTE: No space allowed in User Name input. Remove spaces before or after user name and retry.

I recommend you to remove and add new credentials after testing the connectivity.

Rajeev,

     I had tried this scenario but with incorrect username I can only get:

Exception calling "Invoke" with "1" argument(s): "Could not connect to mypcumserver.company.net"

I don't know how is Roger getting "2" arguments.

Re: Failed to add Credentials

I deleted the entry from "Credentials" and created a new user on the DFM server.

useradd -m wfauser

passwd wfauser <used password of wfauser>

dfm user add -r GlobalFullControl wfauser

I verified that I could log into the Linux server and run a dfm vfiler list command.  I also logged into the OnCommand GUI with the wfauser.

Added the new user <wfauser> to "Credentials". 

Same error.

Failed to connect to OnCommand Unified Manager: dfmserver.company.net.

Please provide the following details:

1. Your DFM server version

2, Attache a screen-shot of the "Test Connecivity" failure for the DFM ( Oncommand ).

I've tried the exact same scenario and for me this worked.

My DFM : 5.1

WFA: 2.1 RC1

dfm version

dfm 5.1 (5.1)

Re: Failed to add Credentials

I've been playing around and think that the command line version of this gui selection is Test-Credential.

I went to a powershell prompt, change to the WFA directory and ran .\profile.ps1

Then I ran the test-credential command which gave me the same error as the GUI.  I eventually had to CTRL-C the command and the recieved the error message.

PS C:\Program Files\NetApp\WFA\PoSH> Test-Credential -Type "DFM" -Ip 10.153.131.199 -UserName wfauser -Password wfauser -Verbose -Debug

I found an issue with ports that zapi uses.  I'm working to get them fixed.  I'll give you an update after ports are fixed.

Thanks,

Roger

Re: Failed to add Credentials

The problem was that I did not have the ports opened for zapi.  This is resolved, thanks for the help.

Roger
