Effective December 3, NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) identity management to simplify and provide secure access to NetApp resources.
For accounts that did not pre-register (prior to Dec 3), access to your NetApp data may take up to 1 hour as your legacy NSS ID is synchronized to the new B2C identity.

Manipulating permissions via ZAPI?


file-create-directory appears to be the only file-* interface that accepts permissions, documented or otherwise. Does anyone have recommendations on how to manipulate filesystem permissions via zapi (even something via system-cli)?



The obvious question - which permissions? There could be at least three disjoint permission sets - Unix, NTFS and NFS v4. NTFS could be changed using fsecurity command invocation (via system-cli). I do not know if it is possible to directly manipulate Unix or NFS v4 permissions.

Pedantic answer, whichever one is reported in file-info/perm or the file equivalent of file-create-directory/perm  (but yeah, the UNIX permission bits).
