Command update - Set Qtree Options (for 1.0.2)


Hello all,

Due to popular request, we have updated our "Set Qtree Options" command to allow setting opportunity locks and security settings on the volume itself.


Just define a Qtree object in define node on the volume in question, with the applicable sec options and locks. For qtree name use "-", as per the picture below:


Command code (For users of older versions and for reference):

param (

  [parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Array name or IP address")]


  [parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Volume name")]


  [parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Qtree name")]


  [parameter(Mandatory=$false, HelpMessage="Virtual Filer name")]


  [parameter(Mandatory=$false, HelpMessage="The new oplocks settings.  Values are enabled or disabled")]

  [ValidateSet("enabled", "disabled")]


  [parameter(Mandatory=$false, HelpMessage="The new security style.  Values are unix, ntfs or mixed")]

  [ValidateSet("unix", "ntfs","mixed")]



# connect to controller

Connect-WFAController -Array $Array -VFiler $VFilerName

if ($QtreeName -eq "-")


    $QtreeName = ""


# Check that Qtree exists

$QtreeStatus = Get-NaQtree -Volumename $VolumeName -QtreeName $QtreeName

if (-Not $QtreeStatus)


    $msg =  "QTree " + $QtreeName + " not found"

    throw $msg


# Path of an existing qtree. The path should be in this format: /vol/volume/qtree or /vol/volume/ to select the volume qtree.

$QtreePath = "/vol/" + $VolumeName + "/" + $QtreeName

Get-WFALogger -Info -message $("Working on qtree: " +$QtreePath)

if ($OpLocks)


    Get-WFALogger -Info -message $("Setting Qtree Oplocks: " +$OpLocks)

    Set-NaQtree -path $QtreePath -OpLocks $OpLocks


if ($SecurityStyle)


    Get-WFALogger -Info -message $("Setting Qtree Security style: " +$SecurityStyle)

    Set-NaQtree -path $QtreePath -SecurityStyle $SecurityStyle
