netgroup.ldap.byhost.missing

Severity

INFORMATIONAL

Description

This message occurs when netgroup.byhost is disabled in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) client configuration on the storage system, and LDAP is configured as an ns-switch source for the Vserver. Enabling netgroup.byhost enables mount operations to succeed faster when the netgroup size is large.

Corrective Action

Consider configuring the netgroup.byhost database on the LDAP server and enabling netgroup.byhost on the LDAP client configuration on the storage system by using the "ldap client modify" command.

Syslog Message

LDAP client config has netgroup.byhost disabled for Vserver "%s" during lookup for netgroup "%s".

Parameters

vserver (STRING): Name of the Vserver on which the problem is occurring.
netgroup (STRING): Name of the netgroup for the lookup request.

netgroup.ldap.config

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when a netgroup lookup request finds that Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is specified as a ns-switch source, but LDAP is not configured for the Vserver. Netgroup lookups using LDAP will not function.

Corrective Action

Check the ns-switch sources configured for the netgroup database using "vserver services name-service ns-switch show" and the LDAP configuration for the Vserver using "ldap show" and "ldap client show". Either remove LDAP as a ns-switch source, or configure LDAP.

Syslog Message

LDAP configuration issues found for Vserver "%s" during lookup for netgroup "%s".

Parameters

vserver (STRING): Name of the Vserver on which the problem is occurring.
netgroup (STRING): Name of the netgroup for the lookup request.
