Contributors netapp-aoife NetAppZacharyWambold

You can use ONTAP System Manager classic (available in ONTAP 9.7 and earlier) to manage preferred domain controllers.

Add preferred domain controllers

System Manager automatically discovers domain controllers through DNS. Optionally, you can add one or more domain controllers to the list of preferred domain controllers for a specific domain.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > SVMs.

  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.

  3. In the Domain tab, click Add in the Preferred Domain Controllers area.

  4. Enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and the IP addresses of the domain controllers that you want to add.

    You can add multiple domain controllers by entering the IP addresses of the domain controllers, separated by commas.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Verify that the domain controller that you added is displayed in the list of preferred domain controllers.

Edit preferred domain controllers

You can use System Manager to modify the IP address of the preferred domain controllers that are configured for a specific domain.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > SVMs.

  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.

  3. In the Preferred Domain Controllers area of the Domain tab, double-click the domain controller that you want to edit.

  4. Modify the IP addresses of the domain controller, and then click Save.

Delete preferred domain controllers

You can use System Manager to delete a preferred domain controller to which the storage virtual machine (SVM) computer account is associated. You can do this when you no longer want to use a particular domain controller.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > SVMs.

  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.

  3. In the Domain tab, select the domain that you want to delete from the Preferred Domain Controllers area, and then click Delete.

  4. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Delete.
