Integrating Ontap with multidomain FreeIPA/Redhat IdM


I'm trying to integrate a FAS (Ontap 9) with our FreeIPA (aka RedHat IdM) installation, so that we can offer NFSv4+krb5 to Linux clients.  This is proving to be a  bit tricky.




The IPA kerberos realm is: IPA.LOCALDOMAIN (corresponding dns: ipa.localdomain)

However, the user realms are: LOCALDOMAIN (dns: localdomain) and STUDENT.LOCALDOMAIN (dns: student.localdomain).


(The users and group live in AD, but the IPA realm trusts the AD realms).


Both the NFS client and the FAS are enrolled to IPA.LOCALDOMAIN and live under DNS domain ipa.localdomain.


Note also that usernames on the clients are fully qualified - so my username is 'rns@localdomain' rather than just 'rns'.


I can successfully mount a test volume on the Linux client with this:


# mount -o sec=krb5 netapp-nfs2.ipa.localdomain:/rnstest2 /mnt4



.. but when I try to access /mnt4 from a Linux client using my own identity (with a valid Kerberos ticket), I get permission denied:


$ cd /mnt4
-bash: cd: /mnt4: Permission denied


The FAS event log shows:

The problem seems to be that Ontap is incorrectly parsing my identity as:


  user-name: rns

  domain string: localdomain@ipa.localdomain


.. instead of:


  username: rns@localdomain

  domain string: ipa.localdomain


Any idea how I can configure Ontap to parse this correctly?
