Nblade.cifsNbNameConflict

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the NetBIOS Name Service receives a negative response from a remote machine for a name registration request. This is typically caused by a conflict in the NetBIOS name or an alias. As a result, clients might not be able to access data or connect to the right data-serving node in the cluster.

Corrective Action
  1. If applicable, delete the duplicate NetBIOS alias by using the "vserver cifs delete -aliases alias -vserver vserver" command. Alternatively, rename a NetBIOS alias by deleting the duplicate name and adding an alias with a new name by using the "vserver cifs create -aliases alias -vserver vserver" command. 2. If there are no aliases configured and there is a conflict in the NetBIOS name, then rename the CIFS server by using the "vserver cifs delete -vserver vserver" and "vserver cifs create -cifs-server netbiosname" commands. Note that deleting a CIFS server can cause data to be inaccessible. 3. Remove or rename the NetBIOS name on the remote machine.
