How to create NFS mount for a directory inside a volume
2017-11-08 12:03 PM
This might be a basic NFS question. I created a volume "vol_nfs" with junction-path "/vol_nfs". I created directories inside the volume "vol_nfs". How can I export any of these sub directories as a NFS mount? I am on Ontap 9.1.
I know how to create a volume and mount it as NFS. My question here is, can I mount a directory inside a volume and create a mount for that?
Thanks for your help!

If the subdirectories you created are qtrees, and you want a different export policy for each one, then you can use the following command to apply a policy to each individual qtree.
Otherwise, each directory within the volume ,whether it is a qtree or just a folder, will use the export policy of the parent volume.
Unfortunately you can't apply the policy to the qtree in system manager. You would have to use:
qtree modify -vserver *vservername* -volume *volumename* -qtree *qtreename* -export-policy *export_policy_name*
