Removing an export policy from a qtree

If you decide you do not want a specific export policy assigned to a qtree any longer, you can remove the export policy by modifying the qtree to inherit the export policy of the containing volume instead. You can do this by using the volume qtree modify command with the -export-policy parameter and an empty name string ("").

About this task

You must perform this task to remove all export policies assigned to qtrees before downgrading to a Data ONTAP release earlier than 8.2.1 that does not support qtree exports.


  1. To remove an export policy from a qtree, enter the following command: volume qtree modify -vserver vserver_name -qtree-path /vol/volume_name/qtree_name -export-policy ""
  2. Verify that the qtree was modified accordingly by entering the following command: volume qtree show -qtree qtree_name -fields export-policy
