vFiler unit preparation for CIFS

You can run the cifs setup command to configure CIFS on the vFiler unit. You can also configure CIFS while creating the vFiler unit by using the vfiler create command.

From the hosting storage system, you can use the vfiler run command to issue CIFS commands for vFiler units. You can use System Manager to manage user accounts and shares.

Note: The cifs setup command is not available on RSH.
Note: When you use an IPv6 address, you should enter the following command: vfiler run vfiler_name options cifs.ipv6.enable on.

Data ONTAP does not limit the number of users, shares, open files, and locked files on a per vFiler unit basis.
