Creating qtrees

Qtrees enable you to manage and partition your data within a volume. You can use the Create Qtree dialog box in System Manager to add a new qtree to a volume on your storage system.

Steps

  1. Click Storage > Qtrees.
  2. From the Qtrees on SVM list, select the storage virtual machine (SVM) on which you want to create a qtree.
  3. Click Create.
  4. In the Details tab of the Create Qtree dialog box, type a name for the qtree.
  5. Select the volume to which you want to add the qtree.
    The Volume browse list includes only the volumes that are online.
  6. If you want to disable opportunistic locks (oplocks) for the qtree, clear the Enable Oplocks for files and directories in this Qtree check box.
    By default, oplocks are enabled for each qtree.
  7. If you want to change the default inherited security style, select a new security style.
    The default security style of the qtree is the security style of the volume that contains the qtree.
  8. If you want to change the default inherited export policy, either select an existing export policy or create an export policy.
    The default export policy of the qtree is the export policy that is assigned to the volume that contains the qtree.
  9. If you want to restrict the disk space usage, click the Quotas tab.
    1. If you want to apply quotas on the qtree, click Qtree quota, and then specify the disk space limit.
    2. If you want to apply quotas for all the users on the qtree, click User quota, and then specify the disk space limit.
  10. Click Create.
  11. Verify that the qtree that you created is included in the list of qtrees in the Qtrees window.
