correct export rules are specified in the ontap_conf​ig.txt file

Hello All

 

Seeing this message when trying to run SRM , fun part is that the documentation , does not show me , where export rules are added to the config file

 

Am using this with ontap 8.3.1 CDOT

 

Does the actual ontap_config.txt file need to be modified or is this a misleading error msg when trying to run SRM test and it fails to create snapshots

Re: correct export rules are specified in the ontap_conf​ig.txt file

Any reason for setting the "root=no" parameter?

 

#NFS Exporting Options
#root = yes/no (default is yes)
root = no
