LDAP or SVM Tunnel authentication, what's the difference?

Hi folks,

Since some time, it seems that you can configure LDAP at the cluster level to enable authentication.

 

I was using previously the domain tunnel from a data SVM with AD authentication.

 

Does someone know the difference? Does Netapp provide any guideline about what to use or when?

 

Regards,

This is my understanding..

 

LDAP at cluster level can be used to assign ldap client schema's to vservers... 

 

You need domain-tunnel to access the cli via CIFS / AD Groups and run powershell commands..
