One thing I noticed after I configured everything, is that I have to pass my domain information (not just my username). So whereas you are simply typing anthonyv at the login screen, for my particular domain you would have to type anthonyv@ad.mel.stg.ibm. I am not sure if that is "as planned", a v7000 misconfiguration, or a domain configuration issue.

Hi Khue, <div>&nbsp;</div> I am not surprised that there are some variations out there, there are lots of setup options and I was just trying to show how I personally got it working. <br /> One interesting point is that if you have a local user and a domain user with the same username then it will use the local one in preference to the domain one. <br /> By adding the full domain name to the userid I can force the use of the domain user.

You hit the nail on the head. The existing logins were causing an issue as they shared usernames with the domain credentials. I removed the local accounts (besides the administration based ones) and everything works as planned. Thanks for your posts AV.

I need to update the blog entry to explain the dynamic between local and remote usernames... especially when they are the same! Thanks for getting back to me, makes my update more informed. <div>&nbsp;</div>

On V7000 Unified there is no menu for "Remote Authentication", but there is one for "Authentication". I think this "Authentication" module only allows authentication for file-services, not storewize management. <div>&nbsp;</div> When I configure the Remote Authentication on the main controllers, it works fine for managing them. I also see my "storageadmins" group pop up in the unified view, but can't authenticate against it on the unified web interface. Does anybody know if this is supposed to work on unified's ? <br />

I got this working on the main controller nodes of our Storwize V7000 Unified, but not on the NAS-heads. Does anybody know if this is supposed to work on the NAS-heads? <div>&nbsp;</div> Looks like the NAS-heads only use the LDAP authentication for file-services, not storage management.. ?

You'd correct, the NAS heads don't offer LDAP for authenticated management, only authenticated file access.

Hi Anthonyv, <div>&nbsp;</div> I try setting ldap authentication(ldap server in linux) but i can't find Remote Authentication, when i try to add ldap server and adding base DN, user suffix, group suffix it is always failed. When i create user suffix like example ou=user it is always back to storwize config default(ou=People), i try to setting user suffix with base DN like ou=user, dc=example,dc=net it is always same back to default configuration. Any idea what happen?, thank you very much....
