Trident blocked with backend update error causing backends to fail

Last Updated:

Applies to

Trident 22.07.0 and later


After a Trident Upgrade to 22.07.0, or a backend update in that version (or higher), the following message repeatedly appears in the trident logs:
level=error msg="Could not initialize storage driver." error="error initializing ontap-san driver: more than one authentication method (username/password and clientPrivateKey) present in backend config; please ensure only one authentication method is provided"
This also causes the backend status being "failed", which blocks it from deploying or destroying PVCs.
