Powershell DataONTAP cmdlet New-NcDirectory

 Can we create directory inside the share which has been created already inside the volume using New-NcDirectory Command?

Re: Powershell DataONTAP cmdlet New-NcDirectory

$Cluster="10.10.10.10";
$ShareName= "netapp";
$dirname="rutulshah";
$VolumeName="vol_home1";
$path="/"+"$VolumeName"+"/";
$Vserver="vser_cifs";

$username="admin";
$password="netapp123";
$PWord = ConvertTo-SecureString –String $password –AsPlainText -Force
$credential=New-Object –TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential –ArgumentList $username, $PWord
Connect-NcController $Cluster -Credential $credential;
Add-NcCifsShare -Name $ShareName -Path $Path -VserverContext $Vserver;

New-NcDirectory /vol/vol_home1/$ShareName/xyz -Permission 0755 -Controller $global:CurrentNcController -VserverContext $Vserver

 

I wrote above script it is creating the folder inside share but giving error : 

 

New-NcDirectory : No such file or directory
At line:15 char:1
+ New-NcDirectory /vol/vol_home1/$ShareName/rutulshah -Permission 0755 -Controller ...

I know this is quite an old topic I am replying to, but in case any one else searching for a similar solution, here is the PowerShell command I got to work:

 

PS D:\> New-NcDirectory -VserverContext SVM_NAME  -Permission 777 /vol/root_volp/folder1/folder2

 

Note the absense of a trailing '/' in the path. Like so:

Re: Powershell DataONTAP cmdlet New-NcDirectory

Did you try enclosing the path in quotes? Perhaps it's not parsing the variable.

 

Example:

 

New-NcDirectory "/vol/vol_home1/$ShareName/xyz" -Permission 0755 -Controller $global:CurrentNcController -VserverContext $Vserver
