Answer

Local users and groups (LUG) is the ability to create user accounts that are local to a Vserver. Authentication and Authorization can be done by using the local users and groups, usually in extreme situations. LUG has been supported since Data ONTAP 8.2 and later.


How to enable LUG in Data ONTAP 8.2+ and ONTAP 9?


Enabling or disabling local users and groups:

Cluster::>set advanced
Cluster::*>vserver cifs options modify -vserver vserver_name -is-local-users-and-groups-enabled true/false


Enabling or disabling local user authentication:
Cluster::*>vserver cifs options modify -vserver vserver_name -is-local-auth-enabled true/false
