CIFS Security


Hey All,

I am a bit new SAN and NetApp in general so please bear with me as I ask this question. I went and created a new volume for a CIFS share that I wanted to create. Everything went well however when I got to Computer Management to set the NTFS permissions on the share I do not see the Security Tab. When I look at all the other CIFS shares it is there. I can only see the Sharing Permissions. Did I miss something?

Thank You



Check the security style of the volume with below command.

qtree status vol_name

You will not see security tab if the volume is unix style.

Hope it will help.


What version of Data ONTAP are you running, in what mode? Is this Clustered Data ONTAP ?
