LDAP when cifs is not licensed

cshenberger

I have an 8.3.1 cmode cluster that I have a need for LDAP authentication to.   This cluster is used only for FCP so it does not have CIFS licensed.   On my cifs licensed clusters this is easy by using a domain tunnel.   How do I create this same access when CIFS is not licensed?

Hi,

You can create AD vserver connection with vserver active-directory create 

and use  security login domain-tunnel  create if you need AD auth on cluster side.

You should be able to create domain tunnel even without CIFS license.

yes but without cifs how will the domain tunnel talk to the domain?  I have configured the user logins and the domain tunnel but I cannot authenticate.

francoisbnc, 

 

 

Thank you, 

 

That is what I needed.  creating the AD account from command line worked and now my ad auth is working.
