Update domain user and group names in local databases

Contributors

You can add domain users and groups to a CIFS server’s local groups. These domain objects are registered in local databases on the cluster. If a domain object is renamed, the local databases must be manually updated.

About this task

You must specify the name of the storage virtual machine (SVM) on which you want to update domain names.

Steps
  1. Set the privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced

  2. Perform the appropriate action:

    If you want to update domain users and groups and…​ Use this command…​

    Display domain users and groups that successfully updated and that failed to update

    vserver cifs users-and-groups update-names -vserver vserver_name

    Display domain users and groups that successfully updated

    vserver cifs users-and-groups update-names -vserver vserver_name -display-failed-only false

    Display only the domain users and groups that fail to update

    vserver cifs users-and-groups update-names -vserver vserver_name -display-failed-only true

    Suppress all status information about updates

    vserver cifs users-and-groups update-names -vserver vserver_name -suppress-all-output true

  3. Return to the admin privilege level: set -privilege admin

Example

The following example updates the names of domain users and groups associated with storage virtual machine (SVM, formerly known as Vserver) vs1. For the last update, there is a dependent chain of names that needs to be updated:

cluster1::> set -privilege advanced
