  • ONTAP 9
  • Netgroup cache
  • Netgroup

Answer

  • The wrong netgroup entries are introduced by the netgroup negative cache
  • When the negative cache is enabled, those look-up fails entries are stored in the netgroup negative cache
  • Those look-up fails entries are named negative entries
  • Negative entries are not present in the netgroups database
