Modifying protocols for SVMs

When an SVM is created, all protocols are allowed for configuration on that SVM. You can modify the list of protocols allowed for configuration on the SVM by adding or removing the protocols.

About this task

When you add protocols for the SVM, these protocols are available for configuration.

When you remove protocols, these protocols are disallowed for configuration on the SVM, and data access through these protocols is stopped.

Steps

  1. Add or remove protocols for the SVM:
    • Use the vserver add-protocols command to allow protocols for the SVM.
      The following command adds the NFS and CIFS protocols to the list of aggregates for the SVM vs1.example.com:
      cluster1::> vserver add-protocols -vserver vs1.example.com -protocols nfs, cifs
      
    • Use the vserver remove-protocols command to disallow protocols for the SVM.
      The following command removes the NFS protocol from the the list of allowed protocols for the SVM vs1.example.com:
      cluster1::> vserver remove-protocols -vserver vs1.example.com -protocols nfs
      
  2. Use the vserver show-protocols command to view the list of allowed protocols for the SVM.
    Example
    The following command lists the protocols for all the SVMs:
    cluster1::> vserver show-protocols
    
    Vserver Name               Protocols
