1. You can do this via FilerView (NetApp 7G GUI native). Point a browser at the IP address of the NetApp storage controller.
2. You can do this via SystemManager (Free). This is a 32-bit MMC style GUI that you install on a client computer to manage the controller. This is much better than FilerView, but probably more than you want to get into right now if all you want is to make a couple of CIFS shares.
3. CLI. Console or SSH (provided you have enabled secure protocols).
Cifs shares –add sharename path
cifs shares –add Share1 /vol/vol1 (creates a share named Share1 on a FlexVol named vol1)
cifs shares –add Share2$ /vol/vol2 (creates a hidden share named Share2 on a FlexVol named vol2)
cifs shares –add Share3 /vol/vol1/qtree1 (creates a share named Share3 on Qtree1 in Vol1)
