RPC Server is unavailable - Controller Simulator - CIFS


Dear All,


I was wondering if you could help on the following matter, (BTW Im very new using Netapp Technologies).

I have managed to install the simulator controller and share files using NFS with a Linux-Ubuntu Machine, However when I trying to use CIFS instead with a windows 7 client, there is an error message popping up (See Below) when I am connecting to the controller using Computer Management.

I have licensed up the controller with CIFS and install it with the following domain jorgen.local (See Below).

I have been looking in different forums but I could not find any solution. do you have any idea why is this error is popping up?


Kind Regards




this is the CIFS configuration
