CIFS service fails to start

Jump to solution

cifsd[14067]: ERROR: ENTRY: DDCLogin() failed Error: -669

The only thing the common proxy handles is CIFS on this server. 

I've tried to change the common proxy password according to TID 7016334 but it fails:


[Status] Running the password change job automatically
Retrieving the current common proxy username from OCS
Executing command: /opt/novell/proxymgmt/bin/cp_retrieve_proxy_cred username

Ldapsearch command executed to verify the common proxy credentials returned: 49
ERROR: Common Proxy credentials verification failed in change password task, exiting the password change task.

What would my next step be?

Server is OES2018 SP1 with latest patches.

And also note that starting with IIRC eDir 8.8.1 a LDAP bind request would also return

ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
additional info: NDS error: failed authentication (-669)

if the bind ID is invalid. In earlier versions (and of course always with NCP)  this would trigger a 601 (no such object). I think this was done to make brute force guys' lifes a little harder.



If you like it: like it.

Thank you Matthias,


The fix common proxy script did the trick. I used the 1.5 version for the record.
