Network and Storage Protocols
What's the file path/name character limit on ONTAP 9 for Windows 8.x clients please?
Any reference docs available?

Thanks for the reply Matt. I've been doing more digging and found a couple of article:
'...........the NetApp software can be negatively impacted if the file path name exceeds 255 characters on a Windows host operating system.'
'On the storage system, the maximum length of a file name is 255 characters for NFS clients and CIFS clients that support PC's long file name format.'

I don't believe there is an ONTAP limitation, rather see the "Maximimum path length limitation" of Microsoft client operating systems here
I'd recommend structuring your data on CIFS shares using a broad directory structure rather than a deep\nested directory sturcutre to avoid this issue on older microsoft operating systems.
