We have recently installed some new filers (running in cluster mode) and are trying to migrate various powershell scripts to the new environment. We are getting issues trying to conect to both SVMs directly and through the controllers. We are running v3.2 odf the toolkit and v8.2.2 of OnTAP.
We are testing connect-nccontroller using the same credentials, they work for some people on some computers and not others. We can't seem to find any specific combination that will work or not. We have tried Win 7, 8.1, 2k8R2 and 2012. No pattern seems to exist.
The answer here turned out to be simple. The user I created in AD was in camel-case i.e. svcDRNcMgmt and me being a linux person I always typed it as such. The storage engineer had unfortunately added the user to the filers in lowercase. In our testing, my colleague, with a windows backgound sometimes typed the credentials in camel-case and sometimes in lowercase as Windows is not case sensitive. So, the credentials always failed for me and sometimes failed for him. Now that we know that DataONTAP is case sensitive we have our solution.
