I don't have permission for respective folder (ex) \\share-IP\xyz\soure\restore . I need delete the " restore" folder.

 

actually i am part of BUILTIN\Administrators but i am unable to access the share  \\share-IP\xyz\soure\restore.

 

Can you please help me this. Is there any option like "setcbprivilege"

Hi @Muru 

 

The following KB article might be helpful to you - https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS_7_Mode/How_to_delete_a_qtree_or_directory

 

Alternatively, you can try to troubleshoot why your access is not allowing you to delete the folder/files - https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS_7_Mode/How_to_troubleshoot_Microsoft_Client_permission_issues_on_a_Dat...

 

Hope this helps.

@RossC thanks for your response, I don't have permission on that share and share sub folder. I can delete the only file through netapp diag mode using  "rm" command.

 

I need delete the entire folder ( sub folder (ex) \\share-IP\xyz\soure\restore  ---->  restore folder i need delete)

Hi @Muru 

 

Thanks for the follow up. So the command would be "rmdir" not "rm". "rmdir" should let you delete the folder rather than an individual file. 

 

This KB Article https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS_7_Mode/How_to_delete_a_qtree_or_directory does share the specific "rmdir" commands to run. 

 

Hope this clarifies.
