Requirements for configuring Kerberos with NFS

Before you configure Kerberos with NFS on the storage system, you must verify that certain items in your network and storage environment are properly configured.

Note: The steps to configure your environment depend on what version and type of client operating system, domain controller, Kerberos, DNS, etc., that you are using. Documenting all these variables is beyond the scope of this document. For more information, see the respective documentation for each component.

For a detailed example of how to set up clustered Data ONTAP and Kerberos 5 with NFSv3 and NFSv4 in an environment using Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory and Linux hosts, see technical report 4073.

The following items should be configured first:

Network environment requirements

NFS client requirements
