Configuring an authentication tunnel

If you have already configured a CIFS server for a data SVM, you can use the security login domain-tunnel create command to configure the SVM as a gateway, or tunnel, for AD access to the cluster.

Before you begin

Procedure

Configure a CIFS-enabled data SVM as an authentication tunnel for AD domain controller access to the cluster: security login domain-tunnel create -vserver SVM_name
For complete command syntax, see the worksheet.

Configuring Active Directory domain controller access

Note: The SVM must be running for the user to be authenticated.

The following command configures the CIFS-enabled data SVM engData as an authentication tunnel.

cluster1::>security login domain-tunnel create -vserver engData
