We are trying to setup CIFS on one of our filers. When the setup wizard was first run it asked for the filers root username and password which was provided but the rest of hte setup failed due to firewall issues.
Between the firewall issues being resolved and the setup being retried we had a security issue nad had to change the root password on the filer.
Now I have managed to complete the CIFS setup but continue to get the error "AUTH: Unable to acquire filer credentials: (0x96c73a18) Invalid password." whenever I try to "Change Access" on a CIFS share. I also get the following output:
.Thu Jul 22 09:06:50 BST [filer-web1: cifs.trace.GSS:error]: AUTH: Unable to acquire filer credentials: (0x96c73a18) Invalid password. .Not able to communicate with PDC xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx trying xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx...xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is alive ..Not able to communicate with PDC xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx trying xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx...xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is alive .Thu Jul 22 09:06:51 BST last message repeated 3 times
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the password that CIFS is using as the root password for the filer? Is this cached anywhere?
Yes, I already looked at that article but I do not know what a KPASSWD server is. Can you shed any light?
If I run the cifs domaininfo command I get:
