We urgently needed some storage, so I decided to reinstall an old Netapp FAS2240-4 with Ontap 8.2.5 in 7-Mode. I do not have any newer licenses and there is no support for this FAS anymore.
I have configured the FAS for access with CIFS and NFS in an Active Directory Domain. I created a volume with NTFS Security Style and I can mount and access it from Windows and NFS, as long as the Unix user is created in the /etc/passwd file on the filer. Since we have Unix information added in our Active Directory, I thought I could use LDAP to retrieve the information that I now have to manuallay add to /etc/passwd, but I can not get it to work. When I set
options ldap.enable on
and remove the user information from /etc/passwd, I get an error like this:
auth.trace.authenticateUser.loginTraceMsg:info]: AUTH: Error in passwd look up of uid 75080 during login from 10.1.3.34
We have attributes uid and uidnumber in AD, which hold the username (which is identical to the samAccountName) and the integer id number of the user. Is it possible to replace lookup of user ids in /etc/passwd by using LDAP?
Here is my configuration:
ldap.port 3268 All other values are the default values.
