I tried to add 8.2.3 7-Mode filer to Windows AD via "cifs setup" wizard, but it's failing with:
CIFS - Logged in as username@MYDOMAIN.COM *** Setup cannot connect to an LDAP server for the MYDOMAIN.COM *** active directory domain, and so cannot continue.
I think the error message is misleading as the filer can talk to LDAP servers (I have multiple domain controllers) and I have a tcpdump that confirms it. From what I could get from the tcpdump, the filer does the following:
0. Sends DNS request "SRV _ldap._tcp.MYDOMAIN.COM"
// + some more DNS requests for "SRV _kerberos" etc.
