There is no fail over configured for it ..halt -d/-f whill it shutdown filer or vfiler ?
Hi - have you tried a CIFS restart on the vFiler to restart and the service or a CIFS setup. You can delete the AD Account for the vFiler, without shutting down CIFS.
If CIFS fails to terminate, then you may need to restart the vFiler first, then try again.
yes halt -d will shutdown the filer creating dump. What's the Data ontap version, because we can see bug related to cifs termination in few Ontap and halt -d is only solution.
Ontap 126.96.36.199,We cant shutdown the Filer which will effect other cifs shares hosted on Filer.Can't we forcely terminate cifs sessions for vfiler and readd to domain.
If cifs service is up then cifs restart will wont work .Instead try connecting vfiler using windows host (with admin login) close all three opened files which are in write + read mode Then try cifs terminate .
Connect to the vFiler using the Windows MMC and manage the host. You should the be able to see any open files of folders. If not restart the vFiler (not the host filer).
I think we missed something if the vfiler has been removed from AD we cannot connect it to using Windows MMC . I think you have to re - run the Cifs setup add the vfiler to domain ,close your open files connecting vfiler from Windows MMC ,cifs terminate ,exclude the vfiler from domain .
Thanks for your support and quick reverts.
The only option worked out for me is to reboot the filer and re-add vfiler to domain using 'vfiler run <filername> cifs setup'.
I am thinking of other option, other than rebooting the filer?...may be not available ..
