Verifying LDAP status

Beginning in ONTAP 9.2, if LDAP is used by your storage virtual machines (SVMs), you must have an established LDAP connection to perform a nondisruptive upgrade. You should verify the LDAP connection before you begin the upgrade.

About this task

The task does not apply if you are upgrading from ONTAP 9.1 or earlier.


  1. Check the LDAP status: ldap check -vserver vserver_name
  2. If the LDAP status is down, modify it: ldap client modify -client-config LDAP_client -ldap-servers ip_address
  3. Verify that the LDAP status is up: ldap check -vserver vserver_name
