We are trying to disable boundary checking for symbolic links from some shares on an Ontap 8.2 simulator. Following documentation refers to setting the "nosymlink_strict_security" option on the share using the following command:
Data ONTAP 7-Mode support a feature (with CIFS share attribute 'nosymlink_strict_security') where clients can follow symbolic links to any destinations (outside the current share boundary) on this Data ONTAP 7-Mode storage system.
However, the clients can not access files outside the shares in clustered Data ONTAP because boundary checking for symbolic links is enabled by default. This behaviour cannot be changed, and symbolic links cannot be used to access files outside the shares after the transition is complete.
