ontap-add multiple file share

Post by sraj »

hi, i have a environment with ontap hosting multiple nfs shares (100+), Using V10 am trying to add each nfs path as part of file share backup job.
is there any way to discover all files shares of a ontap data lif, currently i see the option to add single file share path only at a time.
Adding 100+ file share is a manual time consuming task, any inputs on this is appreciated.

Hello,
as for V10 there are two options

1) use a script doing that
2) use C$ share if you want to backup everything

Best regards,
Hannes

All these are NFS shares. So the C$ is not the option.

C$ also contains NFS shares. I was surprised, but that's how I saw. All NFS shares are exported to C$. That's why I mentioned "everything".

can you please post the case number? because I don't believe that our support can help with Netapp configuration...

I guess, that you need to disable reparse points on the Netapp first

Code: Select all

set -privilege advanced
cifs options modify -vserver SVM_CIFS -is-use-junctions-as-reparse-points-enabled false

I used powershell script from gitlab veeam hub to add multiple shares.
