You can use the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to access the /etc directory of your storage system.


  1. Enable FTP access on the storage system by entering the following command:
    options ftpd.enable on
  2. Set the default home directory to /etc by entering the following command:
    options ftpd.dir.override /vol/vol0/etc

    For more information about FTP, see the Data ONTAP File Access and Protocols Management Guide for 7-Mode and the na_options(1) man page.

  3. Connect to the storage system from a client by using FTP.
  4. Use the FTP get command to copy files from the storage system to your client so you can edit them.
  5. Use the FTP put command to copy the edited files from your client to the storage system.
