Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • CIFS / SMB

Answer

  • Changing the CIFS server's NetBIOS name is not possible through the Command Line Interface (CLI) or ONTAP System Manager.
  • If a name change is necessary, the SVM will need to be rejoined to the domain.
  • To rejoin the domain without losing any CIFS shares, run the following commands:
  1. cluster::> vserver cifs modify -vserver <vserver_name> -cifs-server <CIFS_server_name> -workgroup <placeholder_name> -status-admin down
  2. cluster::> vserver cifs modify -vserver <vserver_name> -cifs-server <new_NetBIOS_name> -domain <domain_name> -status-admin down

Additional Information

  • Rejoining the domain requires Domain Admin credentials
  • The CIFS server is automatically started after the command completes
