vFiler Deployment - CIFS, NFS, or Both


I have put together this workflow that will create a vFiler and then based on your inputs create a single CIFS share and/or NFS export.  I also added in a couple other commands beyond the basic ones to do things like disallow unused protocols for the vFiler, enable SSH, set a custom vFiler password, change some vFiler options, and delete the HOME share that gets created by default when setting up CIFS.  I just wanted to get this out here in case someone has a need similar to this or a least as a point of reference and a chance to have my workflows peer reviewed.  Thanks.  WFA version
