Quick question and yes, I'm "fishing" since I believe the answer will be a resounding "no", but I'm going to ask anyways.
So, I have a AFF700 that is running ALL FC, LIFS, 1 single SVM, 16 FC physical ports etc. I have the ability to upgrade (slots) the storage to 24 (12 per-node) network ports but that's a cost and probably won't happen.
I was going to create a "dummy" SVM that is attached to my domain that I wish to authenticte users against. Dummy, meaning, no volumes, LUNS etc, just simply an SVM running CIFS service and attached to my domain.
Then I would run the security-tunnel command.
My question - Is there absilutely no way to create that dummy SVM running CIFS if I only have FC cards anf LIFS on the storage? Right now I just receive an error that says "No suitable ports found". Maybe use a e0M, secondry SP Port, etc??
I like that idea and it makes sense. The ONLY problem is that all other SVM's on this particular storage array are on let's say a dommain called "AB" and the domain I need ot have people authenticate too is called "CD".
AB = Our internal LABS domain for R&D.
CD = Our top-level (corporate) domain and there is a one-way trust between the AD environments.
That's the reason was trying to explicitly create a new SVM on the "CD" domain. All user authentication, GPO's etc are all within the "CD" domain.
