vserver cifs domain password reset

Reset the CIFS server's machine account password in the Windows Active Directory domain.

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The vserver cifs domain password reset command resets the domain account password for a CIFS server. This may be required if the password stored along with the machine account in the Windows Active Directory domain is changed or reset without the Vserver's knowledge. The operation requires the credentials for a user with permission to reset the password in the organizational unit (OU) that the machine account is a member of. This command is not supported for workgroup CIFS servers.

Parameters

-vserver <vserver name> - Vserver
This parameter specifies the name of the Vserver for whose CIFS server you want to reset the domain account password.

Examples

The following example resets the password for the CIFS server on a Vserver named vs1.
cluster1::> vserver cifs domain password reset -vserver vs1
 
Enter your user ID: Administrator
Enter your password:

cluster1::>
