CIFS Share Create Error

I am getting an odd error when attempting to create a CIFS share (ONTAP 9.8P3) on a RO DP volume.  Here is the command/error message:

 

xxx-clst-01::> cifs share create -vserver xxx-prod-nas01 -share-name VARONIS_jobs$ -path /tg/jobs

Error: command failed: The specified path "/tg/jobs" cannot be used. Reason: This is not a valid file-type for CIFS share.

 

When looking at the path properties I see this:

 

xxx-clst-01::> vserver security file-directory show -path /tg/jobs -vserver xxx-prod-nas01

 

                Vserver: xxx-prod-nas01

              File Path: /tg/jobs

      File Inode Number: 97

I can create the CIFS share using -path /tg without any issues.

 

Any clues as to why a CIFS share can’t be created at path /tg/jobs?

Can you create it via System Manager?

Yes, System Manager was tried.  Nothing is working.  We will be opening a support ticket.

This works fine for me in ONTAP 9.8, provided I use a directory and not a file.

 

# mkdir dir1

 

::*> vserver security file-directory show -vserver DEMO -path /home/dir1

Vserver: DEMO

When I try to do it on a file:

 

::*> cifs share create -vserver DEMO -share-name file$ -path /home/newfile

Error: command failed: The specified path "/home/newfile" cannot be used. Reason: This is not a valid file-type for CIFS share.

Thanks for the response.  We confirmed it is a directory.  Next step is to open a support ticket.
