How 7-Mode configuration files map to clustered Data ONTAP commands

In Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, you typically use flat files to configure the storage system. In clustered Data ONTAP, you use configuration commands. The table below shows how 7-Mode configuration files map to clustered Data ONTAP configuration commands.

7-Mode configuration file Clustered Data ONTAP configuration command
/etc/cifs_homedir.cfg vserver cifs home-directory search-path
/etc/exports vserver export-policy
/etc/hosts vserver services dns hosts
/etc/hosts.equiv Not applicable. Use security login commands to create user access profiles.
/etc/messages event log show
/etc/motd Not applicable.
/etc/nsswitch.conf vserver modify
/etc/rc In clustered Data ONTAP, the retention of node configuration information processed at boot is transferred to other internal files that retain the configuration information. This contrasts with Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, in which features configured in memory are also retained in the /etc/rc file to be replayed at boot and reconfigured.
/etc/quotas volume quota
/etc/resolv.conf vserver services dns modify
/etc/snapmirror.allow Intercluster relationships exist between two clusters. Intracluster relationships exist between two nodes on the same cluster. Authentication of the remote cluster occurs during the creation of the cluster peering relationship. Intracluster snapmirror create can be performed only by the cluster administrator to enforce per Vserver security.
/etc/snapmirror.conf snapmirror create
/etc/symlink.translations vserver cifs symlink
/etc/usermap.cfg vserver name-mapping create
