ONTAP Discussions

Can we ask ontap v9 simulator questions here ?


"volume create -vserver fcsvm -volume vol_windows_fc -aggregate  aggr_2_clus01 -size 500mb"  Warning: 
The export-policy "default" has no rules in it. The volume will therefore be inaccessible. Do you want to continue? {y|n}:" 

   Anyone else seen this?




Looks like it's functioning as designed? 


If you're not planning on exporting it via SMB, and NFS is turned on, and the default export policy doesn't have any rules, this message comes up. You can say no to stop, or yes to create it and then add to the export rules. 


If you're creating it to export via iSCSI (or FC, not supported on simulator), you might want to use the LUN create command instead. 


If you're new to NetApp systems, I suggest first reading this technical report on NetApp ONTAP - https://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3982.pdf and then having a read of our SAN Administration guide at https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMLP2492716


Hope this helps!
