View Open Sessions 7-Mode Ontap 8

sbmmiller

Anyone know how to view open sessions on a 7-Mode Ontap 8 then close all the sessions?

 

I see documented "cifs sessions" but I dont see any commands where I can filter on the volume or the share.

Hi,

 

Some pointers.

 

The closest you can get to 'filter' on volume and sessions by using combination of commands.

 

First: Following command will tell you the 'users' and what 'shares' they are connected-to. In this example:

User=admin
Share = vol_test

 

7-mode> cifs sessions *

users
shares/files opened

192.168.0.131() (TEST.COM\administrator - pcuser)
vol_test
7-mode>

 

Second: Use the regular command 'cifs shares' to determine volume it's share (In this example, vol & share_name are same).

7-mode> cifs shares
Name                Mount Point                         Description
----                           -----------                         -----------
vol_test        /vol/vol_test everyone /       Full Control
7-mode>

 

Some more handy commands: Data ONTAP 7-Mode:


To terminate CIFS only on a particular volume (vol1 is used as an example): -t is number of seconds...
filer> cifs terminate -t 5 -v vol1

 

To restart CIFS on a specific volume (for Data ONTAP 6.5 and later):
filer> cifs restart -v vol1

 

To close all the sessions for the entire filer node:
filer> cifs terminate -t 0

 

There is a KB:
https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS/How_to_terminate_CIFS_in_Data_ONTAP_7-Mode_for_a_particular_volume_or_...

 

If you would like to know : Which SMB protocol, or total number of CIFS sessions, then:

filer> cifs sessions -t
Using domain authentication. Domain type is Windows 2000.
Root volume language is not set. Use vol lang.
Number of WINS servers: 0
Total CIFS sessions: 1
CIFS open shares: 1
CIFS open files: 0
CIFS locks: 0
CIFS credentials: 1
IPv4 CIFS sessions: 1
IPv6 CIFS sessions: 0
Cumulative IPv4 CIFS sessions: 39
Cumulative IPv6 CIFS sessions: 0
CIFS sessions using security signatures: 0
SMB 1.0 CIFS sessions: 1
SMB 2.0 CIFS sessions: 0
SMB 2.1 CIFS sessions: 0

 

If you just want to know which users are connected:
filer> cifs sessions -s


Thanks!

Thanks, it seems a little complex. I can use MMC and see who is connected to a shared folder.
