Unable to create a cifs share. Getting the below error when I execute this command, 

"vserver cifs create -vserver vs1 -cifs-server cifs1 -domain <domain-name>"

 

Error: Machine account creation procedure failed

you indeed need to create a separate data lif for a data vserver, node and cluster management lifs can't be used for this. Use dedicated network ports, port groups and broadcast domains for a vserver and it's data lifs.

Does vserver vs1  have a lif configured and DNS configured? 

prawin

Yes. But I have one doubt. Does my Data LIF IP address for vs1 should be different from my node management IP address?

SpindleNinja

Yes.  they have to be separate.   node and cluster mgmt are totally separate from anything else in ONTAP (cdot / cluster mode) 

also the CIFS lif cannot be on e0M like the node mgmt / cluster mgmt lif can be.
