In 7.3.x you have the imitation of 99'998 directories per subdirectory, which has been lifted with Ontap 8.1.
Then depending on the size of the volume you have a setting of maximum inode entries (which can be adjusted with the "maxfiles" command)...
And the usual storage limits which a FAS2040 has... They can be found in the "System Configuration Guides" on NOW.
