How vFiler units work with FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs

You can manage FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs of parent files and parent LUNs in both the default and nondefault vFiler contexts.

If you are a default vFiler administrator, you can manage the FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs of all the FlexClone volumes in both the default and the nondefault vFiler units. However, if you are a nondefault vFiler administrator, you can only manage the FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs of the FlexClone volumes in that nondefault vFiler unit.

While creating FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs of FlexClone volumes in a nondefault vFiler unit, you must ensure that the source file path and the destination file path are in the same vFiler unit.

For more information about FlexClone files and FlexClone LUNs, see the Data ONTAP Storage Management Guide for 7-Mode.
