make a volume read-only

I Need to pass a volume from online to read-only. But I must continue to serve the data. 

So the restrict option don't work. 


Is there a way to do that ?


I am running a 8.2.4P5 version in 7-mode.





Re: make a volume read-only

Is the volume SMB/NFS?  If so, just modify the permissions/export policy to only allow read-access from the clients.


Hope that helps,



Re: make a volume read-only

Ok I already thought about this but I have a many vfilers and a lot of CIFS shares on each one.


I guess I'm going to have a long day.



Thank you anyway. 


have a good day...better than mine 🙂
