Re: Minimum size of the CIFS share!!

Assuming that the CIFS share you are creating maps to a flex vol – the smallest flexvol size that is possible with ONTAP is 20MB.

Also assuming the default snap reserve of 20% was used in the flex vol you would end up with the 16MB indicated in your post.

If you are looking for something smaller why not create a qtree under a flex vol and just apply a 10MB qtree quota?
