Connect-NaController always fails for Protocol -RPC saying The RPC server is unavailable.

Hi All,

     I'm trying the following command but it fails. I think I'm missing something basic. Can anyone help me?

PS C:\Users\Administrator.QANBENG> Connect-NaController -Name 10..20.30.40 -rpc

Connect-NaController : RPC Error: The RPC server is unavailable. Code 0x6BA.

At line:1 char:1

+ Connect-NaController -Name 10.20.30.40 -rpc

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidResult: (10.226.208.232:NaController) [Connect-NaController], EAPITRANSMISSION

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : RpcConnectionFailed,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.ConnectNaController

I've enabled domain login to my Aray and I can login successfully using the give user. I login to a Windows machine with same Domain credentials and execute the above command. But it always fails.

Can anyone point me to where should I start debugging?

My Toolkit version:

Just want to make sure your netapp is running cifs

My Cifs is running. I am able to login as a Domain User into the array. I can connect using HTTP/HTTPS, but I want to connect using RPC.

everything we've seen in the past points to a domain / user issue. 

type whoami   whoever that user is should have admin rights or whatever rights to the filer

PS C:\Users\Administrator.QANBENG -< --- does that user have rights

sinhaa

FAS2240-208-232*> useradmin whoami

QANBENG\Administrator

FAS2240-208-232*>

I'm in Group: Administrators and once I login I can do anything that an Administrator can.

But I don't see how permission etc is a problem. If that be the case I should have got something like Access Denied error. But The error thrown points me that there is no server listening for an RPC request.
