cdot cifs create error

When setting up a cifs SVM.
Prerequisite: the time difference between DNS/AD and the cluster is no more than 5 minutes.

cl1::*> cifs create -vserver cifs_sales -cifs-server CIFS_SALES -domain netapp.local -ou CN=Computers -default-site "" -status-admin up

In order to create an Active Directory machine account for the CIFS server, you must supply the name and password of a Windows account with sufficient
privileges to add computers to the "CN=Computers" container within the "NETAPP.LOCAL" domain.

Enter the user name: administrator

Enter the password:

Problem may be solved by adding a preferred-dc to the SVM:

cl1::*> domain preferred-dc add -vserver cifs_sales -domain netapp.local -preferred-dc
