Editing share settings

You can use System Manager to modify the settings of a share, such as the symbolic link settings, share access permissions of users or groups, and the type of access to the share. You can also enable or disable continuous availability of a share over Hyper-V, and enable or disable access-based enumeration (ABE).


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), and click Storage > Shares.
  3. Select the share that you want to modify from the share list and click Edit.
  4. In the Edit Share Settings dialog box, modify the share settings as required:
    1. In the General tab, enable continuous availability of a share over Hyper-V.
      Enabling continuous availability permits SMB 3.0 and later clients that support SMB 3.0 to open files persistently during nondisruptive operations. Files that are opened persistently are protected from disruptive events, such as failover, giveback, and LIF migration.
    2. In the Permissions tab, add users or groups and assign permissions to specify the type of access.
    3. In the Options tab, perform the following actions on the share:
      • Select the settings for the symbolic links.
      • Enable opportunistic locks (oplocks).
      • Enable clients to browse through the share.
      • View Snapshot copies.
      • Notify changes.
      • Enable ABE.
      • Enable BranchCache.
      • Enable data to be encrypted using SMB 3.0 while accessing this share.
  5. Click Save and Close.
  6. Verify the changes you made to the selected share in the Shares window.
