ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

vserver active-directory password-reset

Reset the domain account password for an Active Directory account

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.


The vserver active-directory password-reset command resets the domain account password for the Active Directory account. This may be required if the password stored along with the machine account in the Windows Active Directory domain is changed or reset without the Vserver’s knowledge. The operation requires the credentials for a user with permission to reset the password in the organizational unit (OU) that contains the machine account.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver

This parameter specifies the name of the Vserver associated with the Active Directory account whose domain account password you want to reset.


The following example resets the password for the Active Directory account for a Vserver named vs1 .

cluster1::> vserver active-directory password-reset -vserver vs1
