vserver cifs-server OU shows wrong OU

When running the following command:

vserver cifs show -fields cifs-server,ou

The OU on 1 of our vservers is reported wrong.  We tried moving the AD Object to the OU it thought it was in, then back to the OU it was in (which is where all the rest are) and it has not updated.  Is there a command to force the netapp to update this field?

@Shane01638,

 

As mention by @Ontapforrum in the previous post; you should be able to modify the OU by the vserver cifs modify command.  But you will first need to admin down the cifs server.  Once the command completes successfully, then the CIFS server status is automatically set to up

I think you can use 'modify' command to update/change the OU, have a look at this kb. However, before modifying you must take the cifs server down (Clients will be disconnected)
