CIFS file path length still limited to 260 even when using WIndows 10?


Running OnTAP 8.2P3 in 7-mode.  


Since Windows 95 there has been a 260-character limit on the path + folder length. In the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Edition they put a Registry setting that removes this limitation. But since the shares are served up from the NetApp SAN I’m wondering if there is a setting that allows us to remove that restriction or if there is a restriction on the NetApp side.



any answer on this?
