CIFS Security


Hey All,

I am a bit new SAN and NetApp in general so please bear with me as I ask this question. I went and created a new volume for a CIFS share that I wanted to create. Everything went well however when I got to Computer Management to set the NTFS permissions on the share I do not see the Security Tab. When I look at all the other CIFS shares it is there. I can only see the Sharing Permissions. Did I miss something?

Thank You



What version of Data ONTAP are you running, in what mode? Is this Clustered Data ONTAP ?

I will assume it is not, can you provide the output of :

cifs access show



Check the security style of the volume with below command.

qtree status vol_name

You will not see security tab if the volume is unix style.

Hope it will help.
