I am in the middle of trying to resolve a problem with Openfiler when it is linked to Active Directory.
I have a Server running Openfiler 2.3 x64 and another Server running Windows Small Business Server 2003. I have integrated Openfiler with Active Directory so that the shares are only accessible to users from Active Directory.
I have discovered a problem where if the Active Directory Server is unavailable for any reason, I cannot login to Openfiler in any way - this includes via SSH, directly into the console, via the Web portal, or access any of the shares. If I reconnect the link to Active Directory, everything works again straight away.
Is there a way of caching the Active Directory credentials in Openfiler somehow, so that if the domain controller is unavailable, users can still access the shares, and I can at least still login to Openfiler?
