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?

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

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

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.

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'.

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'"

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Rudiger,

Please Can you recheck with Domain Controller Details. And also after executing the command please can you check whether DNS is configured properly for vserver.

This error is mainly because of DNS Issues.

I am able to create vserver with cifs and nfs configured successfully.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Ruediger,

The issue you are facing is not from WFA side. The issue seen in your configuration might be because of following reasons.

1. Domain controller and Ontap clocks are not in sync.

2. There might be simultaneous cifs operations happening on ontap.

please check and Let us know.

Regards,

Satish.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Satish,

I checked all the configuration again:

1. the clocks between DC and on tap are in sync

2. simultaneous cifs operations cannot happen, because this is my own virtual envirnonment. No one else is having access to my environment.

3. Please see the attached screenshots.

4. After I execute the workflow, I get the attached error-message.

5. After I tried to create the vserver vs3, it failed after creating and adding the DNS-Server to the vserver. (Please see the screenshot)

6. It failed during the joining of the vserver in to the DC.

Ruediger

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Ruediger,

Please Can you try the below steps.

1. Execute the workflow and let it fail with error "SecD Error: Configuration not found".

2. Go to Ontap and try to create cifs service by using following ontap CLI,

satishh-vsim1-d1::> cifs server create -vserver satish_vs3 -cifs-server cifs-vs3 -domain qatlveng.local

In order to create an Active Directory machine account for the CIFS server, you must supply the name and password of a Windows account with sufficient

privileges to add computers to the "CN=Computers" container within the "qatlveng.local" domain.

Enter the user name: Administrator

Enter the password:

3. If the step 2 is successful, Then Execute the workflow to create another  cifs/nfs Vserver.

When i tried with another ontap, even i faced the same issue. But i followed the above steps, it worked for me.

The cause for the error "Secd Error : Configuration not found"  is ontap is waiting for reply from domain controller, which is not received in certain time.

Alternatively,

Please execute the workflow creating cifs/nfs Vservers multiple times, It will start succeeding.

Please try out the above steps and let me know if it works.

Regards,

Satish.

Re: clustered Ontap: Create Vserver with cifs server options

Hi Satish,

thanks for the quick answers! I really appreciate!!!

Yes, I can manually join the vserver in to the domain.

With the powershell cmdlet and on the ssh-console.

I tried several times the workflow, but it fails all the time.

What Ontap-Version are you using?

I use: NetApp Release 8.1.2 Cluster-Mode

Ruediger
