How 7-Mode configuration files map to clustered Data ONTAP commands

In Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, you typically use flat files to configure the storage system. In clustered Data ONTAP, you use configuration commands. You need to know how 7-Mode configuration files map to clustered Data ONTAP configuration commands.

7-Mode configuration file Clustered Data ONTAP configuration command
/etc/cifs_homedir.cfg vserver cifs home-directory search-path
/etc/exports vserver export-policy
/etc/hosts vserver services dns hosts
/etc/hosts.equiv Not applicable.

The security login commands create user access profiles.

/etc/messages event log show
/etc/motd security login motd modify
/etc/nsswitch.conf vserver modify
/etc/rc In clustered Data ONTAP, the retention of node configuration information processed at boot is transferred to other internal files that retain the configuration information.

In Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, features configured in memory are also retained in the /etc/rc file to be replayed at boot and reconfigured.

/etc/quotas volume quota
/etc/resolv.conf vserver services dns modify
/etc/snapmirror.allow Intercluster relationships exist between two clusters.

Intracluster relationships exist between two nodes on the same cluster. Authentication of the remote cluster occurs during the creation of the cluster peering relationship.

Intracluster snapmirror create commands can be performed only by the cluster administrator to enforce per storage virtual machine (SVM) security.

/etc/snapmirror.conf snapmirror create
/etc/symlink.translations vserver cifs symlink
/etc/usermap.cfg vserver name-mapping create
