Password for eyeglass service account has expired

If you have used the eyeglass service account when adding the clusters in Eyeglass, check whether the “Password Can Expire” setting for the eyeglass service account is set to “Yes”.  When the password expires even though the networking between the Eyeglass appliance and the Isilon clusters is setup and connectivity can be verified with ping, Eyeglass cannot connect to the Clusters due to authentication errors and considers them to be unreachable.  One way to check this is to try and login to the OneFS GUI using the eyeglass service account and password.  If you cannot login to the OneFS GUI then Eyeglass will also not be able to login.


To resolve this issue, login to the OneFS GUI and enter a new password for the eyeglass service account.

If it is appropriate for your business environment, you may also change the setting for “Password Can Expire” to “No”.
