Setting volume access time update and other options?

Hi all

It seems like there a few vol options from 7-mode that I can't work out how to set in 8.2.1 Clustered ONTAP such as no_atime_update.

Is there a cluster shell command to enable this option on a volume?

I also tried "node run <nodename> vol options <volume> no_atime_update on" which returned the result "vol options: 'no_atime_update' option not supported on cluster-mode volume <volume>"

Thanks

Adam

Volume modify -atime-update.

Thanks AB, turns out that wasn't quite sufficient.

As found here http://practical-admin.com/blog/?p=1410 you need to jump into advanced mode to set this option and enter

volume modify -vserver <vserver-name> -volume <volume-name> -atime-update false

to enable no_atime_update. A bit convoluted for such a simple and useful setting.
