Verifying the status of netgroup definitions

After loading netgroups into the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), you can use the vserver services name-service netgroup status command to verify the status of netgroup definitions. This enables you to determine whether netgroup definitions are consistent on all of the nodes that back the SVM.


  1. Set the privilege level to advanced: set -privilege advanced
  2. Verify the status of netgroup definitions: vserver services name-service netgroup status
    The command displays the following information:
    • SVM name
    • Node name
    • Load time for netgroup definitions
    • Hash value of the netgroup definitions

    You can display additional information in a more detailed view. See the reference page for the command for details.

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


The following command displays netgroup status for all SVMs.

vs1::> set -privilege advanced

Warning: These advanced commands are potentially dangerous; use them only when
         directed to do so by technical support.
