Pinned topic Cross-platform GPFS Windows Server 2008R2/linux

‏2012-03-27T15:49:45Z |
Given that:

1) GPFS on Windows requires SUA and ssh.

2) SUA wants to be installed by the local administrator account.

3) GPFS wants to be run by an account named 'root' for the linux servers to be able to ssh in and control it.

1) Is there any implication here that the 'root' account needs to be the local administrator account (account with SID 197108)?

2) Further, when GPFS tries to contact the domain LDAP to attempt to do UID mapping through IMU, I'm assuming that it uses the 'root' account to do so. Is that setting fixed or can it be changed. Our university domain, for security reasons, really doesn't want to have or support an account named 'root'.

We're looking at GPFS installation on a Windows Server 2008 R2 node with linux GPFS servers. I can get the GPFS filesystems to mount. I can't get the UID mapping to work.

Looking at the mmfs.log file, we continue to get error 6027-1550 when attempting to contact the domain. When using wireshark, we see that it is, in fact, contacting the server, but we're getting an invalidCredential from the bind request.

LDAPMessage bindResponse(4) invalidCredentials (8009030C: LdapErr: DSID-0C09043E, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 0, vece)

Any thoughts?

    Sigh, I'm sorry, I did not realize I had posted this in the wrong forum.
