Volumes and qtrees on a vFiler unit

A volume assigned to a vFiler unit can be a traditional volume or a FlexVol volume. You cannot assign an aggregate to a vFiler unit. You can create qtrees in a volume only if the vFiler unit owns that volume.

For information about traditional volumes, FlexVol volumes, and aggregates, see the Data ONTAP Storage Management Guide for 7-Mode.

Example: Creating a qtree in the default vFiler unit

Assume the /vol/vol0 volume is owned by vfiler0. You can use the following command to create a qtree in the /vol/vol0 volume:

qtree create /vol/vol0/qtree1

Example: Creating a qtree in a nondefault vFiler unit

Assume the /vol/vol1 volume is owned by vfiler1. The administrator for vfiler1 can use the following command to create a qtree in the /vol/vol1 volume:

rsh vfiler1 qtree create /vol/vol1/qtree2
