Hi,

 

I am new to NetApp, and trying to find the difference between Exporting a Qtree and Share a Qtree?, i have a doubt if this is related to Linux/Windows client??

Hello @Vinodma,

 

Generally speaking, an export refers to accessing the data via NFS whereas a share refers to accessing the data using CIFS/SMB.

 

Hope that helps.
