From the hosting storage system, you can use the useradmin command to create local accounts for CIFS users of each vFiler unit. Each vFiler unit supports up to 96 local user accounts.
The maximum number of vFiler unit user accounts per storage system is 96 times the maximum number of vFiler units for that storage system.
For additional information about using local accounts for CIFS authentication, see the Data ONTAP File Access and Protocols Management Guide for 7-Mode.
