Prerequisites for creating vFiler units

Before you create vFiler units, you must ensure that you have created at least one unit of storage (qtree, traditional volume, or FlexVol volume). You must also ensure that there is a free IP address in the network, which is required when you create a vFiler unit.

The storage unit that contains information about configuring the vFiler unit must be writable. It must not be a read-only file system, such as the destination volume or qtree in a SnapMirror relationship.
