The default vFiler unit

When you enable MultiStore, Data ONTAP automatically creates a default vFiler unit on the hosting storage system that is named vfiler0. The vfiler0 unit owns all the resources of the storage system.

When you create vFiler units and assign resources to them, the resources are assigned from vfiler0. Therefore, vfiler0 owns all resources that are not owned by nondefault vFiler units.

The default vFiler unit exists as long as MultiStore is enabled. On a storage system with MultiStore enabled, you cannot rename or destroy vfiler0.

All information provided about the vFiler units is applicable to vfiler0, unless noted otherwise.
