ok, so I tried the commands nfs start/stop/status/show and no error messages were printed out. Everything seems fine.
The oncommand gui also shows that nfs is enabled in the svm.
I've attached pictures of the ontap9.3 and 9.4 license page. Interestingly, all licenses on 9.4 show a green tick but when I click on them, all license show a cross in the licensed column on the bottomn details pane.
Hi @willwmww - I have just had the opportunity to setup an instance of the 9.4 vsim - and I see the same behavior in the license window - it shows the licenses as un-used and un-licensed.
Just to check, I upgraded the vsim to 9.4P1 and still see that, so I think it is a cosmetic issue. I suspect what is happening to prevent data access is related to the default export policies for the volume - by default an export policy allowing none is set.
Navigate to Storage -> SVMs -> SVM Settings, then Export Policies and define the IP addresses that should be able to access the volume.
If it still doesn't work, you may have to connect to the CLI and modify the firewall policy on the data LIF to enable NFS traffic - network interface modify -vserversvmname -lif nfslifname-firewall-policy mgmt-nfs
@howard, I'm very sorry to hear that this didn't go smoothly for you any time you tried - I hadn't done it for 9.4, so I went through the whole setup process for an ONTAP 9.4 virtual simulator, on ESX however, not Workstation, and found that it worked fine (other than, as mentioned above, an NFS LIF ending up with a firewall policy that prevented NFS traffic).
Please feel free to message me with details of your company and contact email and phone number, and I'll get someone to contact you about arranging access to a demonstration environment.
I have seen that behaviour (gets lost during cluster setup) twice on Fusion but have not been able to replicate it in any controlled way. I suspect host performance to be a factor as my system was under a pretty heavy load on at least one of those occurances.
