vFiler unit storage management from the hosting storage system

As the physical storage system administrator, if you need to manage storage resources that belong to a vFiler unit but you do not have administrative access to the vFiler unit, you can temporarily move the vFiler unit's resources, or temporarily destroy the vFiler unit.

Note: Before taking either of the following actions, you should unmap any LUNs that have been created in the affected storage resources. For instructions, see the Data ONTAP SAN Administration Guide for 7-Mode.

Depending on which action you take, you can later move the storage resources back to the vFiler unit, or restore the vFiler unit.
