A network error when i tested the connection of a proxy user

Good evening

I 'd created a 3 appliances Filer system . Filer 1.1.0.653

The Filr Apl is in DMZ and every ports are open between it and the 2 Windows boxes (AD and File Sharing)
Every thing seems well. I could inport AD users, create filr users, and work ...

But when i want to create a NetFolder server, impossible to pass the connection test

Name : Cn=Administrateur, cn=Users,dc=arcdom,dc=arcane-inf,dc=com (Administrateur because i'm French :=)
or
Name : Administrateur
or
Name = arcdom\Administrateur

Click on test connection => an network error occurs :mad:

I'd try with a "Filr" ADuser with same ACL as Administrateur, same ...

The Novell-FAMT is running. (I tried to restart it without succes)


Help ....... 🙂

From the docu:




Click the Authentication tab, then specify the following information:

Proxy name and password: Specify the fully qualified, comma-delimited name and password for the proxy user used to access the OES, NetWare or Windows, server. (You can use the Browse icon next to the Proxy field to browse the LDAP directory for the proxy user that you want to use.)

IMPORTANT:Before you specify a proxy name and password for the Net Folder server, ensure that you review the information in Section 8.1.2, Planning the Net Folder Server Proxy User.

Test connection: Click this button to ensure that the path is accurate and that the credentials are valid, then click OK after the test succeeds.

Sometimes proxy users with the incorrect context pass this test. Ensure that the context for your proxy user is correct, as described in Expected Name Format for File Servers.

Authentication type: Select the authentication service for the file server that you are connecting to. This option corresponds with the Server type setting that you selected on the Configuration tab. If you selected OES or NetWare as the server type, only Novell NMAS is available as the authentication type. If you selected Windows as the server type, you can select either Kerberos, NTLM, or Auto detect as the authentication type. (Auto detect means that it tries authenticating with Kerberos first, and if that fails, authenticates with NTLM.)

NOTE:If Kerberos is selected as the authentication type, ensure that the DNS name server is able to resolve DNS queries for the Active Directory domains.

If the Kerberos port (port 88) is disabled on the Windows server, select NTLM as the authentication type.


So you should use comma delimited name for the username... Did you also try browsing for the user using the icon there?

Does is log any specific error message in /opt/novell/filr/apache-tomcat/logs/appserver.log file when you try to test the connection?

Re: A network error when i tested the connection of a proxy

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using : CN=Administrateur,CN=Users,DC=arcdom,DC=arcane-inf,DC=com
and i tried the icon button which give me the same user in the box (with comma, etc ..)
I used the same to browse LDAP and import users from AD without problèmes.

No specifics errors founds (for now) in the appserver.log
At what kind of error do you think ?

See here: https://www.novell.com/documentation/novell-filr-1-1/filr-1-1_readme_novell/data/filr-1-1_readme_novell.html#b1383h6s

Could it be any of those, especially sections 8.7 8.8 8.9 ?

Re: A network error when i tested the connection of a proxy

I noticed these points so i'd double checked

8.7 : no trailling backslash
8.6 : I'm using administateur
8.8 : Restart many time ...

I espect some thing wrong on my AD, but the error message is ... "syntax error style" (for who knows old Basic language °=)


I'd tried reach the directory from a Windows Box witch is not in the domain.

\\192.168.1.2\partage
login : arcdom.arcane-inf.com\Administrateur & Password => OK

Okay.. then maybe the debug log will help figuring it out: https://www.novell.com/documentation/novell-filr1/filr1_admin/data/b16r1l0n.html

Re: A network error when i tested the connection of a proxy

Happy new year 2015


After many tests, it's seem i am punish by Microsoft of my laziness.

I have discovered that the second server (specialised for sharing files) showed some troubles to be reach by Workstation too.
Many Google pages after :rolleyes: the second server was created by a clone of the AD server and have the same SID.
So, i disjoined the server from the AD, modified the SID with PStools, ... , and rejoined the server.

Now, the state the problem is :

- For the Net Folder Server (AD Controler)
Name : Cn=Administrateur, cn=Users,dc=arcdom,dc=arcane-inf,dc=com
Test => OK 🙂

- For the other Net Folder Server (File server)
Name : Cn=Administrateur, cn=Users,dc=arcdom,dc=arcane-inf,dc=com
Test => an network error occurs :mad:

Name : ARCDOM\Administrateur
Test OK :confused:

Any idea ??
