Creating multiple qtrees

Limor

Hello,

I'd like to create multiple qtrees on a cifs volume. I found the article about creating a file that consists of multiple commands for qtree creation, saving it to the root dir on the said volume and then, from the console, running the command 'source <filename>'.

I receive the error "source is not supported". I have Data Ontap 9.7.

Is there another way of doing this?

Help will be much appreciated.

I am not sure if source command exists in ontap 9.7

 

if you are doing this only once, just copy and paste the qtree creation commands to an ssh session

 

if this a repetitive task, you could take a look at the ontap powershell tool kit

Thank you for answering.

I'll need to create dozens if not hundreds of qtrees.  No copy/paste for me.

I'll check the powershell option you suggested.

PowerShell and REST APIs would be the way to go.

 

We also have Ansible playbooks:

We don't do source for files anymore, as we don't use flat files in cDOT.

I looked through the powershell toolkit. Couldn't find a command that'll create qtrees.

Can anyone point it out for me please?

Thanks in advance.
