we use a script to generate new shares on our Netapp.
The script first creates a qtree and after a cifsshare with the same name.
What happens, if I want to move this cifsshare to another volume with the Windows Computermangement?
Does the Computermanagement although generate a qtree on the new location?
What is the qtree - only a folder or more?
I found this, because of the qtree / cifsshare question:
And must say is it not true. If I generate a new Share with Computermanagement, there is no qtree generated.
A qtree appears to a CIFS/NFS client as a folder/directory but to the filer it has added functionality e.g. quotas, qtree SnapMirror.
A qtree must be created before a share can be created on it, as your script does, therefore Windows Computer Management will also require the qtree to be created before the share.
I created a new share with Windows Computer Manangement and after the share I created the qtree. I saw no failure.
Works this, too?
But how can you create a share based on a qtree that doesn't yet exist? I guess I must be misunderstanding your question...
This the part I do not unterstand - what is the shortcut between a qtree and the cifsshare?
Only the same name of qtree an cifsshare?
I still don't understand your question, try this:
