Mounting a FlexVol volume that has load-sharing mirrors for CIFS clients

If you are mounting a volume that has one or more mirrors from a CIFS client that must have access to the parent read-write volume (for instance, to make changes to it), you must create a new CIFS share.

Step

  1. Use the vserver cifs share create command to maintain access to the parent read-write volume.
    Example
    For example, if you are mounting a client that requires read-write access to a mirrored volume mounted at /dept/eng/sandbox on an SVM named engdata, the following command can be used:
    cluster1::> vserver cifs share create -vserver engdata -share-name engdata -path /.admin/dept/eng/sandbox
    

    To mount a client that requires only read access, you can use the command without the /.admin link.

    Requests from this CIFS share will be redirected to a load-sharing mirror.

    cluster1::> vserver cifs share create -vserver engdata -share-name engdata -path /dept/eng/sandbox
