Allowing a protocol on a vFiler unit

You can select the protocols that you want to allow on the vFiler units by using the vfiler allow command.

Before you begin

To allow CIFS, NFS, FTP, or HTTP on a vFiler unit, each of the protocols must have an active license on the hosting storage system.


  1. Enter the following command to allow a protocol on a vFiler unit:
    vfiler allow vfilertemplate proto=protocol ...

    protocol can be any one of the following supported protocols: nfs, cifs, iscsi, rsh, ssh, ftp, or http.


    The following command allows the NFS and RSH protocols on the vFiler unit named vfiler1:

    vfiler allow vfiler1 proto=nfs proto=rsh
