Unable to create a cifs share. Getting the below error when I execute this command, 

"vserver cifs create -vserver vs1 -cifs-server cifs1 -domain <domain-name>"

Does vserver vs1  have a lif configured and DNS configured?

Re: Unable to create a cifs share

Yes. But I have one doubt. Does my Data LIF IP address for vs1 should be different from my node management IP address?

Re: Unable to create a cifs share

Yes.  they have to be separate.   node and cluster mgmt are totally separate from anything else in ONTAP (cdot / cluster mode) 

also the CIFS lif cannot be on e0M like the node mgmt / cluster mgmt lif can be.

Re: Unable to create a cifs share

you indeed need to create a separate data lif for a data vserver, node and cluster management lifs can't be used for this. Use dedicated network ports, port groups and broadcast domains for a vserver and it's data lifs.
