I work in an environment where NetApp filers are heavily utilized for employee home drives and public shares. We've recently been notified that an automated task is intermittently failing because of "authentication problems" on a shared folder on a public drive housed on a filer. It's too early to tell whether there's any validity to the "credential" problem, but I configured auditing on the share for the task and credentials in question.
Here's the problem: When connecting to the filer from Computer Management on a Windows 2003 or 2008 server, I cannot view the security log. I get the following error:
"Unable to complete the operation on "Security". The remote procedure call failed."
Every other function works within this session, as only viewing the log fails. For example, I can view local users and groups, and can also browse Shared Folders (shares, sessions, open files).
Anyone come across this before? I've viewed security logs on a NetApp filer via Computer Management on a Windows Server before, not sure why it now fails for all users from all Windows servers. Does access to this log have to be enabled with the filer settings?
