I have the question of cDOT CIFS share property showsnapshot.
whether enable or disable the showsnapshot property, I can always access the ~snapshot directory when mannulay entering the path of the \~snapshot. So how does this property take effect?
As the guide of File Access cDOT831,Page314 When the showsnapshot share property is disabled, a user on a Windows client using SMB 2.x cannot view the ~snapshot directory and cannot access Snapshot copies within the ~snapshot directory, even when manually entering the path to the ~snapshot directory or to specific Snapshot copies within the directory. When the showsnapshot share property is enabled, a user on a Windows client using SMB 2.x still cannot view the ~snapshot directory either at the root of the share or within any junction or directory below the root of the share. However, after connecting to a share, the user can access the hidden ~snapshot directoryby manually appending \~snapshot to the end of the share path.

Do you have load sharing mirrors of svm root? "snapmirror show -type LS" to check. You may need to update the mirror to reflect the change in the namespace. If LS mirrors, "snapmirror update ..." is what I would run.. then also make sure the schedule is running for updates "snapmirror show -fields schedule".
