Commands for modifying SVM attributes

You can modify the attributes of an SVM such as the language, maximum number of volumes, Snapshot policy, and quota policy by using the vserver modify command.

If you want to modify... Use the following command... Applicable to SVMs with FlexVol volumes? Applicable to SVMs with Infinite Volume? Notes
Language vserver modify -language Yes No When you modify the SVM language, the language setting of the existing volumes in the SVM does not change.
Snapshot policy vserver modify -snapshot-policy Yes Yes NA
Quota policy vserver modify -quota-policy Yes No NA
QoS policy group vserver modify -qos-policy-group Yes No NA
Maximum number of volumes vserver modify -max-volumes Yes No When the value is set to unlimited, which is the default value, any number of volumes can be created on that SVM.

If you specify the value as 0, then volumes cannot be created on that SVM. Therefore, you must specify a value so that the SVM administrator can create volumes.
