Specifying home directory paths
Data ONTAP searches the home directory paths in the order you specify for the directory that matches the user name. You can specify home directory paths by editing the /etc/cifs_homedir.cfg file.
Enabling or disabling widelinks from a share
You can enable widelinks from a share if you want to allow CIFS clients to follow absolute symbolic links to destinations outside the share or storage system. By default, this feature is disabled.
Disabling home directories
You can stop offering home directories by deleting the /etc/cifs_homedir.cfg file. You cannot use the cifs shares -delete command to delete home directories.
