Changing export policies

When a volume is created, it automatically inherits the default export policy of the root volume of the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM). You can use System Manager to change the default export policy associated with the volume to redefine the client access to data.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the SVM, and then click Storage > Namespace.
  3. Select the volume, and then click Change Export Policy.
  4. Select the export policy, and then click Change.
  5. Verify that the Export Policy column in the Namespace window displays the export policy that you applied to the volume.


The default export policy is replaced with your new custom policy.
