Specifying the SFTP authentication style

To configure SFTP to use UNIX, Windows, or both authentication styles, you can set the sftp.auth_style option to unix, ntlm, or mixed, respectively. By default, this option is mixed.

Step

  1. Perform one of the following actions:
    If you want the authentication style to be... Then...
    Mixed Enter the following command: options sftp.auth_style mixed
    NTLM Enter the following command: options sftp.auth_style ntlm
    UNIX Enter the following command: options sftp.auth_style unix

    If you set the authentication style to mixed mode, Data ONTAP decides which authentication style to use based on the username format. If a username contains "\" or "@", it authenticates using NTLM. If it does not, it authenticates using UNIX.

    If you set the authentication style to NTLM or UNIX, Data ONTAP uses only the specified authentication style regardless of the format of the username.
