OneFS authentication is implemented for many different storage environments and authentication requirements can differ from setup to setup. Background authentication processes (daemons) add complexity to configuring authentication. Issues can and do arise. But help and guidance are readily available!

Check out Fragile Cogs: Starting and Stopping OneFS Authentication Processes  on the Uptime Information Hub for information and advice about starting and stopping authentication daemons. (Hint: Follow the instructions or call EMC Isilon Technical Support first.)
