authenticate --join --domain <domain name> [--ou <org-unit name>] --user <user name>

Description

Joins the QoreStor to an Active Directory Services (ADS) domain when you specify the ADS domain name and a valid user (administrator) for that domain.

NOTE: When attempting to join the ADS domain, the administrator password is required for that domain to ensure that the join operation is successful. Supported domain names are limited to 64 characters in length and can only consist of a combination of A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and two special characters: a dash (-) and a period (.).

NOTE: If you had previously joined the QoreStor to an ADS domain before running Restore Manager (RM), after it completes you must manually rejoin the desired ADS domain using the authenticate --join command.

Syntax

authenticate --join --domain <domain name> [--ou <org-unit name>] --user <user name>

Where

--domain   Name of ADS domain to join.
--ou       Name of the organizational unit to join.
--user     Name of ADS user with permissions to join the domain.

Enter password for administrator@ads.storage.local:
Successfully joined domain ads.storage.local
Disabling NTP service... done.

NOTE: The --ou command is optional and allows for defining a specific organizational group in the ADS that requires its own administrative access rights (such as an executive management or finance group). In case of multiple organizational groups, use the following format: "<topLevelOU/middleLevelOU/LowerLevelOU/TargetOU>”

authenticate --leave [--user <user name>] [--force]
