Network Storage Protocols Discussions
I'd like an old NT box to be able to log in with a local user, and then connect to the filer authenticating with a user account local to the filer.
Can I do that? Should I be using the useradmin command? When I enter:
useradmin user add username
It appears I have the syntax wrong as it returns with the help syntax.
Thanks for your help,
Does the user account already exist on the filer?
On the NT box in a cmd prompt.
net use \\filercifsname\ipc$ /user:filercifsname\fileruseraccount
Should allow the locally logged in user to access all the shares on CIFS filer "filercifsname" that user account "fileruseraccount" is entitled to.
You should then be able to browse the filer filercifsname
Yes, it's a valid authentication model.
You need to include '-g groupname' with your user add command.
I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Thanks, didn't realize I had to add him to a group. So, I did this:
useradmin group add my_group
and that worked fine, got the response:
Group <my_group> added.
Now, I do this:
useradmin user add my_user -g my_group
and get the error:
Could not add user <my_user>. Error: Invalid parameter
Underscore is valid for a username.
It's probably that your new group has no roles assigned to it.
Try using one of the existing groups - the group 'Users' is probably what you want.
See also 'useradmin group list'
Correct, I don't have any roles associated with that group. When I try to add the user specifiying the Users group, I get the same error:
useradmin user add my_user -g Users
But it shows that the Users group has the audit Role:
useradmin group list Users
Name: Users Info: Ordinary UsersRid: 545Roles: auditAllowed Capabilities: api-snmp-get,api-snmp-get-next
What's gone wrong here?
Hmm, intersting. A copy paste just worked fine for me on a 7.3.1 system:
Netapp01> useradmin user add my_user -g UsersNew password:Invalid password. Error: Password must have at least 8 charactersNew password:Retype new password:User <my_user> added.Netapp01>
