I'm trying to create a workflow based on the workflow "Create a Clustered Data ONTAP Volume CIFS Share" but without any snapshot (Snapshot Policy set to none , .snapshot directory visibility disabled, snapshot reserve to 0%).
I did the snapshot reserve to 0% without any problems but snapshot policy to none failed and i was unable to see any inputs that allow me to disable .snapshot directory.
I dig into the workflow and found that the snapshot_policy is set in the modify volume rule :
As you can see i tried to set it to none in order to disable it.
I do not have a 5.0 environment, so my suggestions may not be exact. I would suggest that you try to clone and modify the volume create template. There is an option in the volume template to enable snapshots. Try setting this to false and see if this does what you want. If not, then on the Volume modify, you need to complete the input tabs to include cluster and vserver. You also need to ensure that you have a policy called none created for those clusters and vservers. I think the first suggestion will get you want you need, but if not, then try suggestion 2.
