I am in the process of setting up a SVM that will use CIFs and NFS. I am using ontap 9.7p12 classic view in system manager. When I click on my SVM > NFS > services > LDAP client there are two tabs. The second tab is for binding. My question is should I check the box for "bind as a CIFs server" (since this is a multiprotocol SVM) or should I just fill in the blanks for authentication, Bind DN user and Bind User password? We don't have separate LDAP server / we are using AD for LDAP
Yes clients will access the same volume via NFS and CIFs. I saw the option "Bind as CIFs server" in the GUI while setting up a LDAP client on a SVM and was wondering if it is preferred to check this box if I am utilizing both CIFs and NFS on this SVM.
