secd.ldap.bindDn.missing

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when the -bind-dn user is not configured and the -bind-as-cifs-server option is set to false in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) client configuration. This LDAP configuration is not recommended because it might result in CIFS credentials being used for authentication if CIFS configuration is present (even though -bind-as-cifs-server is not set). It might also result in anonymous authentication attempts.

Corrective Action

Configure the bind distinguished name (user) and the bind user’s password using the following commands: vserver services name-service ldap client modify -bind-dn vserver services name-service ldap client modify-bind-password

Syslog Message

The LDAP bind DN user is not configured on Vserver %s.

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): Vserver associated with this operation.

secd.ldap.connectFailure

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when the server could not establish a TCP connection to a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server.

Corrective Action

From a LDAP client workstation, make sure that the LDAP server is responding to requests. Also make sure that the portmapper on the LDAP server is responding to requests. Make sure that there are no networking issues stopping the cluster from communicating with this LDAP server.

Syslog Message

vserver (%s) could not make a connection over the network to LDAP server (%s) at address (%s) and received error (%s)

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): vserver associated with this operation.
serverName (STRING): Name of the LDAP server that was not responding.
serverAddress (STRING): Address of the LDAP server that was not responding.
ldaperror (STRING): Internal LDAP client library error.

secd.ldap.hostnames.not.resolved

Severity

ERROR

Description

This EMS is generated when none of the configured LDAP hostnames can be resolved.

Corrective Action

Examine the DNS configuration for the corresponding Vserver.

Syslog Message

None of the hostnames can be resolved for Vserver: %s.

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): Vserver associated with this operation.

secd.ldap.hostnames.resolved.partially

Severity

ERROR

Description

This EMS is generated when some of the configured LDAP hostnames cannot be resolved.

Corrective Action

Examine the DNS configuration for the corresponding Vserver.

Syslog Message

Hostnames cannot be resolved for Vserver: %s, unresolvedHosts: %s.

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): Vserver associated with this operation.
unresolvedHostnames (STRING): Hostnames which cannot be resolved.

secd.ldap.noServers

Severity

EMERGENCY

Description

This message occurs when none of the configured Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers are accepting connections.

Corrective Action

From an LDAP client workstation, make sure that all configured LDAP servers are responding to requests. Ensure that there are no networking issues stopping the cluster from communicating with the configured LDAP servers. Also, ensure that the portmapper running on the LDAP server is working correctly.

Syslog Message

None of the LDAP servers configured for Vserver (%s) are currently accessible via the network for LDAP service type (%s).

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): Vserver associated with this operation.
ldapOperation (STRING): LDAP operation and service for which the connection is required.

secd.ldap.query.timed.out

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the LDAP server fails to respond to a query and timeout occurs.

Corrective Action

Because LDAP server timeouts might be the result of connectivity issues between the storage controller and the external service or latency in LDAP server response time, ensure that external connectivity and external services have not been disrupted.

Syslog Message

Vserver '%s': LDAP server %s did not respond to query within timeout (%d seconds) interval.

Parameters

vsName (STRING): Name of the Vserver for which LDAP response timed out.
ipaddr (STRING): IP address of the LDAP server.
timeout (INT): Number of seconds before the LDAP query is timed out.

secd.ldap.referralError

Severity

INFORMATIONAL

Description

This message indicates that the domain controller does not have a copy of the requested object (which exists) and it is providing a location that is more likely to hold the object.

Corrective Action

Modify the environment to avoid LDAP referrals.

Syslog Message

Server (%s) does not hold the target entry for ldap filter (%s) on vserver (%s).

Parameters

serverAddress (STRING): Address of the LDAP server that responded with referral.
ldapSearchFilter (STRING): The Ldap search filter associated with this operation.
vserverName (STRING): Vserver associated with this operation.

secd.ldap.slowServer

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message indicates that the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server is not responding to requests in the expected time frame.

Corrective Action

Make sure that there are no networking issues creating intermittent communication problems with the LDAP server. Make sure that the machine running LDAP is responsive and not overloaded. From a LDAP client workstation, run LDAP commands to verify long response times.

Syslog Message

from CIFS Server(%s) calls to LDAP server (%s) at address (%s) is executing slowly enough to adversely impact the performance of your server.

Parameters

vserverName (STRING): vserver associated with this operation.
serverName (STRING): Name of the LDAP server that was not responding fast enough.
serverAddress (STRING): Address of the LDAP server that was not responding fast enough.
