I have some qtrees full with CIFS data I need to delete, I cannot do so as thet are not empty. It will take sometime to delete all of the CIFS data due to not having NTFS permissions and ownership over the folder/files. I don't really want to have to take ownership and mess with permissions in order to delete the qtrees.
Surely there is a way to force the deletion of the qtree, I did see some one mentions the priv set advanced commands but I want to be sure rather than just attempting commands as this is a live filer.
Can someone assist?

Thanks, m8. I was already wondering. Why would you have a command like qtree create /vol/volume/qtree but there is no qtree delete /vol/volume/qtree
But then I compared qtree help under normal prompt and then in privilege advanced mode and understood that NetApp thinks that that command to be a bit risky and I understand the privilege mode a little bit better again.
