Nblade.nfsCredCacheFlushed

Severity

INFORMATIONAL

Description

This message occurs when the administrator modifies the "extended-groups-limit" option or "auth-sys-extended-groups" option using the "vserver nfs modify" command. This results in the flushing of the entire credential cache, thereby making the subsequent operations slower for a short while until the credential cache is repopulated.

Corrective Action

(None).

Syslog Message

When the administrator modifies the "extended-groups-limit" option or "auth-sys-extended-groups" option using the "vserver nfs modify" command, the entire credential cache is flushed that holds credentials on connections that use mixed-mode security style volumes or RPCSEC_GSS authentication or extended groups over AUTH_SYS. This makes subsequent operations on such connections slower for a short while, until the credential cache is repopulated. The value of "auth-sys-extended-groups" option is %d (1:enabled, 0:disabled). The value of "extended-groups-limit" option is %d.

Parameters

isExtGroupsEnabled (INT): Flag to indicate if "auth-sys-extended-groups" option is enabled or not.
extendedGroupsLimit (INT): This indicates the number of auxiliary groups supported over RPC security flavors AUTH_SYS or RPCSEC_GSS. The range is 32 to 1024.
