Has anyone noticed from the time you mount a flexgroup and create a cifs share that it takes a long while before you can access it?
I created a test flexgroup, mounted it to a junction path, created a cifs share. Took over 30 mins before Windows would allow me to connect to the share.
Unmounted and remounted with a different junction path name and same thing again.
I have a 100gb flexgroup across two aggrs w/ default multiplier of 4. (12.5GB x 😎

Since I just asked NetApp recently what the catch was, I'll share the answer here.
If you're using load-sharing mirrors for your SVM root volume, you're probably waiting for the propogation.
SIgn on to your cluster and force a snapmirror update with:
cluster::>> snapmirror update-ls-set -source-path <svm name>:<svm root volume>
