Executing commands from a vFiler unit
If you want to work strictly with the data on a vFiler unit, you can execute commands directly from it. These commands are run as if they are being run on the vFiler unit's console, and are subject to the constraints of the vFiler unit.
Enter the command: vfiler context <vfiler_name>
Example: vfiler context vfiler1
Enter the command you want to run:
This shows all the commands available to you from the context of the vFiler unit.
To return to the context of the host storage system, enter the command: vfiler context vfiler0
vFiler unit preparation for CIFS
You can run the cifs setup command to configure CIFS on the vFiler unit. You can also configure CIFS while creating the vFiler unit by using the vfiler create command.
From the hosting storage system, you can use the vfiler run command to issue CIFS commands for vFiler units. You can use System Manager to manage user accounts and shares.
When you use an IPv6 address, you should enter the following command: vfiler run vfiler_name options cifs.ipv6.enable on.
