in the description for this workflow is following:
Remove a volume as well as its shares and exports. This workflow includes:
- Deleting all CIFS shares of the specified volume.
- Deleting all NFS exports of the specified volume.
- Deleting all SnapMirror relationships of the volume.
- Deleting all quotas related to the volume.
- Deleting the volume.
When i look in the command code i don't see any "Remove-NaNfsExport" call
How does this work?
I want to make sure, than exports entries should be commented out.

Deleting a volume inherently deletes the NFS exports also.
That is why you do not see any "Remove-NaNfsExport" call made in the code.

thanks for your information.
We want to implement a 2 phase decommision. First bring the volumes offline and after one week destroy it.
Actually I cloned the volume remove command and changed it from destry to offline.
Is ther a better way to do this?

The NFS export is only removed if the following option is set:
This option automatically creates and deletes exports in case volumes are created/deleted. Security sensitive customers usually disable this option.
If disabled, the WFA workflow would leave a stale export behind as the NFS export is not explicitly removed.

thanks for clarifying this.
We have disabled this option on all controllers or vfilers. Its sensless, because when we create a CIFS volume its exported rw. This is a security leak.
So that means we have to add on the workflow a exportfs -z aka Remove-NaNfsExport ? The decomission workflow is getting more complex. There a several qtrees in a volume. Has somebody done this before?
Should be addressed in certified workflows.

We can use looping to accomplish such workflows. Should there be N number of qtrees OR N number of nfs exports in the volume; we can use loops to find the corresponding qtrese in the volume OR nfs exports in the volume.
Basically in the loop we need to use a finder to find the qtrees or nfs exports in that particular volume.
Then use "Remove Qtree" Or " Remove export" command.
Hope this helps!!

For the 2 phase decommission implementation, i suggest the following:
Hope this helps.
