Decreasing the vFiler unit limit

You can decrease the vFiler unit limit when you need fewer partitions on your hosting storage system.

About this task

When you decrease the limit, the change is effective immediately and does not require a reboot of the storage system.


  1. To decrease the vFiler unit limit, enter the following command:
    vfiler limit number


    To reduce the number of vFiler units that you can create from 15 to 10, enter the following command on the hosting storage system:

    vfiler limit 11

    The limit is set to a number that must be one more than the number you create, because one vFiler unit is created automatically when you enable MultiStore.
