It's not ONTAP limitation it's limitatation imposed from SMB and NFS protocols.
"For example, the length of filenames may vary across servers from different operating systems. NFS (versions 2 and 3) limits filenames to 255 characters; mountd (versions 1 and 3) limits pathnames to 1024 characters."
- A pathname MUST be no more than 32,760 characters in length.
- Each pathname component MUST be no more than 255 characters in length.
