we have a NetApp Snaplock Volume (SnapLock Compliance) for archiving. The Filer works in a Windows Domain via CIFS.
Now, we want to change the name of the Windows domain. Is this possible? And what I must do that the access permission of the existing files on the filer will match with the new domain (new SIDs)?
Thanks a lot!

I am fairly sure you can't do anything with regards to ACLs or updating SIDs - the volume is in essence in a WORM mode (enforced by NetApp hardware), so changing anything within the volume is not doable.

Unfortuntely it looks like you won't be able to do anything to change the permissions once WORM is set on the file. The users/groups that exist on the file need to remain throughout the retention period or the file may become inaccessible.
A workaround to this prior to enabling snaplock to a volume would be to set the "Everybody" access to the files and control access from the cifs shares.
