  • ONTAP 9
  • Active Directory Authentication
  • CIFS Domain-Tunnel

Answer

An SVM can be managed with an Active Directory (AD) account even with no CIFS server present

  • Use the following command to create a computer account for the SVM in AD

::> vserver active-directory create -vserver DataSVM -account-name ADSERVER1 -domain demo.netapp.com

This enables authentication of AD users and groups to the data SVM

  • Run the security login create command to create an AD user or group to manage the cluster or SVM

NOTE: For cluster administration with an AD account you will have to create domain tunnel
