1. You can do this via FilerView (NetApp 7G GUI native). Point a browser at the IP address of the NetApp storage controller.
2. You can do this via SystemManager (Free). This is a 32-bit MMC style GUI that you install on a client computer to manage the controller. This is much better than FilerView, but probably more than you want to get into right now if all you want is to make a couple of CIFS shares.
3. CLI. Console or SSH (provided you have enabled secure protocols).
Cifs shares –add sharename path
cifs shares –add Share1 /vol/vol1 (creates a share named Share1 on a FlexVol named vol1)
cifs shares –add Share2$ /vol/vol2 (creates a hidden share named Share2 on a FlexVol named vol2)
cifs shares –add Share3 /vol/vol1/qtree1 (creates a share named Share3 on Qtree1 in Vol1)

I hope the complete cifs setup is done... "I have cifs activated" worried me
because he is asking about just simple cifs command, I guess the cifs setup isn't complete..
to the TW: what shows the output of > cifs domaininfo < ??

I have done the CIFS set up and all but the problem was with the language that i set on the volumes when they are created. Now its working fine, thanks a lor for concern. :-)
I just came to know that the Language on the volume can effect so many things. Thanks to forum where i do get lot of help.
