Greetings everyone,

I would love to get your answer on any one of these questions.

Thank you for your time.

Q1. What would be the ideal server to enter as the authentication domain?
(Is it the master replica server?)

Q2. What kind of lookup does it send to auth domain? (LDAP or other). and
what account does it generally use for that authentication lookup? I tried
to do a dstrace on the primary authentication server and i am not seeing
any ldap requests on dstrace. The main reason why I need a dstrace is to see
why there is a long delay in logging in?

Q3. It seems like Netstorage requires Imanager on the actual netstorage box?
I tried by best to manage netstorage from another imanager instance to no
avail. Therefore, I gave up and finally installed it on the netstorage unit.
However, before i make this solution live, I feel like I need to disable
imanager so that the outside world cannot even access this tool? Is anyone
else doing that, if so have you found an easy way of turning off and on? Or
better yet, have you found a way to manage netstorage without having
imanager on the netstorage box.

Q4. Is there a way to force SSL Auth for netstorage?

I really apologize for the length and # of questions, I did try to find some
of this in the documentation. Any help on any of the questions would be very

Thank you again.
