[-skip-name-validation {true|false}] - Skip Name Validation

By default, Data ONTAP validates the name to ensure it complies with the following rules:

  • The name contains only these valid characters: 0 through 9, A through Z, a through z, "_", ".", and "-".
  • The name does not start with the character "-".
  • The name does not contain "$" except as the last character.

If the parameter is set to true, the name validation is skipped.

The following example adds a user named tsmith to a local UNIX group named sales on a Vserver named vs0:
cluster1::> vserver services name-service unix-group adduser -vserver vs0 -name sales -username tsmith
