Getting errors in the log, "An attempt to renew credential with an invalid account" which are filling up the filesystem.


Error

Cause



Credential from client node has been deleted from the PM.  Credential renewal failures being output into the log every few seconds are filling up the filesystem.


Solution



Stop services on the client node:
  # hastop -client -local -force

On PM node:
- Go to the location of the VAD 1.1 install media.
    # ./installvadcd -createcredential
- scp the 3 files created on the PM to the client

Reconfigure the client:
  # cd /opt/VRTS/install
  # ./installvadcd -configure
- Use the files copied from the PM when prompted.
