Issue


When using domain credentials to log into the ONTAP cluster shell via SSH, the login is unsuccessful and secd logs do not have a record of the lookup. The following can sometimes be found in the messages.log file:

[auth_sshd:error:67987] in do_pam_domain_auth(): do_pam_domain_auth: RPC Handle to mgwd is null, is mgwd up?
[auth_sshd:error:18492] in do_pam_domain_auth(): do_pam_domain_auth: RPC Handle to mgwd is null, is mgwd up?
